If you want to learn how to map then you want an I7 core and a Nvidia Quadro card.

My old computer specs

Pentium Dual-Core 3.2Ghz

6GB DDR2 533Mhz

Nvidia Quadro FX3000 400Mhz

Time to compile my big assed church siege 2 map, 14 hours

NEW Computer Specs

I7 920 x8 2.8Ghz

16GB DDR3 1533Mhz

Nvidia Quadro 4000 2GB GDDR5

Time to compile my big assed church siege 2 map, 17 seconds

If you want to level-design or develop software then the new computer specs is what you need.

If you are gaming then an AMD cpu and an ATI card.

What...?! You only get Quadro gfx-card, if you're up for VERY HEAVY 3D (doing architecture, modeling car parts 1:1), otherwise, just waste of money. Seriously, there is not point getting Quadro if you're a gamer.

Also, you don't need Core i7 for level design. Sure, it's nice to have HyperThreading the i7 has, but i5 (without HT) is just as good on normal every day use. Besides, the newest Ivy Bridge Core i5 processors are more power-efficient and they're also alot better doing their calculating than old Core i7 920, for example.

Basically, having a rig with Ivy Bridge Core i5, 16GB DDR3, some newer (not newest) graphics card (GTX from nVidia or HD**** from AMD) will get you quite far on alot of stuff. To that, add some nice quality SSD and you got some lightning-speed PC. :)

Whatever the case may be full of, I'll be likely to refer to it. I just don't want a mediocre life, you know? When I think of people who know how to map, I think of sophisticated and active people in life. I don't want to do too much bike-riding or sports... and even if I do, it HAS to be like Gordan Freeman: A scientist... who is also scientifically physically engaged(as in his expertise is also in physical activity).
