That's a loaded question mate! You'll get tons of opinions, and remember, that's what they're going to be. If you want highest rated, again, going to web sites that rate hardware is based on testing, and yes.... opinions. I'm going to give you my opinions...

Graphic Vid Card for gaming:

Nvidia 6800 Ultra 256mb
ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum 256mb

Sound Card:
(Remember, it's not just the card you'll have to think on, it's the Speakers too.)

Creative Sound Audigy Platinum eX
Logitech Z-5500 Digital Speakers






AMD Athlon FX55


Up to you mate...


I like Linksys...

I believe that UPSs can only support single computers, unless you have a huge UPS that you have all PCs plugged into.

Good Luck!

Yes, Seagate are one of the better brands.

No matter which HDD you choose, try and keep it COOL. Hard drives don't like heat. I use an Antec case, which allows the hard drives to have their own 80mm fan, and would recommend Antec cases to anyone based on this alone. They also have great build quality.

I'm an Intel freak, so I wouldn't recommend AMD (burned me too many times, no pun intended).

The Power Supply is one of the most important things inside any computer, and for this you can't go past the Antec True Power PSU's. Get as much wattage as you can afford. With power, the more the better, and the more regulated the better.

A UPS is a great idea, for a similair reason. APC UPS's are great.

tomshardwareguide.com is a great resource, which I'm sure you've already found.

That's my two cents worth...
