AMD support is often better in Linux.

Processor: Intel either Haswel or Ivy Bridge i5-i7
Graphics Card: IDK, it depends on who is better at writing drivers today (AMD or Nvidia) but I do want it to be pretty good.
RAM: at least 16GB IDK what manufacturer to go with
Motherboard: IDK depends on compatibility with the other parts and what manufacturer is known to be good I also want some room to expand the RAM later on
Wireless: Im thinking Intel, I definetly dont want a Killer Wifi card
PSU: I know to go over the amount of power the other parts draw but IDK what manufacturer to go with.
HDD: at least a 128GB SSD (IDK what manufacturer) and a 1TB HDD
Cooling: I dont know if I want to with water cooling (risky considering if the pipe breaks) but if it ends up cooling the parts better than a large fan than I may consider it
Case: Any case that can hold the parts and has some room for expansion.
OS: Windows 7 Professional (we are buying it) and I would like to dual boot it with Linux
