My short list.

While there are few games like the PS3 items let's give the short list of Vista (to get DX10), Dual Core CPU, 2GB RAM and a video card as high as you can from this list ->,2064.html

That's the short version I like to stick with. Moving up just a notch and a new idea is to connect to the display with HDMI if you can.
