Ars updates system guide

Ars Technica has updated its system guide with the latest and greatest hardware for budget, performance, and ridiculously opulent machines. I don't necessarily agree with every one of their recommendations, and you likely won't either. We geeks can be fickle about these things. So, now that you've checked out what Ars recommends, what would you put in a budget, performance, or dream-worthy rig?
Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
