Need a new computer

I thought I just needed a new monitor for my computer so I went out and purchased a gorgeous 19" LCD flat screen. It was gorgeous... only problem was my video card is too old to get the resolution to the right scale... so the picture was kind of fuzzy. ANNOYING!

I decided that for the extra $$$ it would cost to upgrade my video card, I can get a whole new system that will run a helluva lot faster then what I've got now. I've decided to take the plunge and return the monitor and buy a whole new desktop computer... but what spec's am I looking for? I mainly use my computer for word processing, music, photo storage/editting and email/chat/internet.

Any suggestions???
