I'm looking into purchasing a new computer to replace my laptop. I often have to run several graphic design programs at once in addition to Firefox, Thunderbird, Microsoft Office 2007, et al. My poor laptop can't handle it and runs extremely slowly and 'virtual memory low' messages aren't uncommon.

I'd like to avoid getting a 'pre-packaged' computer and just build my own.

The programs I'm running are Adobe Creative Suite 3, Tajima DGML by Pulse, Bryce 6, and the aforementioned Firefox, Thunderbird, Office.

Any suggestions on choosing hardware?

Thanks in advance!
