I'm looking at getting my wife a new business computer and I've been confused by the variety of hardware available on everything post 386.

We need:
1) powerful processor.  I want to run a 64 bit version of linux on it though of course we don't need much power for that.  But she also runs virtualbox with XP inside it and that does need some horsepower.
2) quiet.  The box sits on her desk in our home so quiet is better.

I read briefly that AMD motherboards are set up to allow updating of more powerful CPU's coming in the future?  I like to get my machines from Dell but they don't typically have AMD.  Thoughts on processor,and where to buy are welcome.
