GPU fo 'sho, CPU's dont usually ship with custom coolers, neither they are modified alot, in other hand GPU's ship with custom coolers and factory overclocks and all kinds of shizzle plus heavily modified PCB, which overall gives more bang for the bucks.

I chose GPU.
Back in 93/94, I had a $2500 GPU and a $1400 CPU card in my Amiga 3000. Back then I was young and had too much disposable income.
I have a problem justifying a $400 video card nowadays.

GPU.

You can always Overclock a CPU to $1000 CPU speeds.

CPU I do not game so I don't need all the fancy bells and whistles.
I would rather have a V8 0r V12 under the bonnet

Depends on your application, in my laptop I have $1000 worth of GPU's running twin 4870's in CrossFireX and the CPU is a Q9100 Quad Eng Sample. My desktop is running an XFX HD5870 xxx Edition which is around $450 and the CPU is an i7 975 Extreme which is well over $1000 both fit their needs.
