With that many apps running you well benefit from a multi core possessor, AMD 6 core are very affordable. Win7 on a ssd drive and a multi TB HHD for data storage. As much RAM as the OS supports, 8 or 16. You really don't need the newest generation GPU, something 2-3 generations old is very affordable. You ever consider running multiple monitors? Two or even three 23" flat screens would be sweet with that many apps running.

A new system well really need a new mobo, case and power supply. Look at the case cooling as a factor in choosing the case.

What about a multi-boot machine? With that you can have a single machine that can run any OS, although only one at a time.

If you need all three (or even more) running all at once you could do with a bunch of virtual machines on a single middle-high end PC (maybe even your main rig). But depends from what stuff you are coding, as long as it isn't horribly hardware-related it will be fine. You can also run them one or two at a time in case you don't have a powerhouse PC or use a laptop.

If you are interested I can provide more info/tutorials.

I'm also going to need a place to store massive amounts of data, with no media.
non-program non-system data is the same. Anything will be fine to store and read/play from movies to excel stuff. Even USB hard drives.
In case you weren't in touch with technological advancement, you can get 1 TB hard drives for very good prices nowadays (as top tier are 2 and 3 or more TB). One TB (Terabyte) is 1000-ish GB. So yeah. That's what, 100 years at your rate of data buildup?

I suggest to buy two drives though, and have the same data on both. You know, redundancy in case one fails.

I agree with having backups for sure....I think the best value right now are 2TB drives. I've bought a couple and at the time they were only around $10 more(on sale) than 1TB drives. I think the Seagate 2TB drives are currently $15-20 more than the 1TB drives....double the space for a few more bucks. Even if he doesn't need that much space now, you always buy drives with more capacity than you need for obvious reasons. I wish 4TB drives had been out when I got the 2TB drives, I would have saved up and got that instead...
