Just want some opinions on these

I know of some others I have had a look at but am wary these days because of the hype.

John, I've used aswMBR, rkill, RootkitBuster, and Sophos Virus Removal Tool at various times just as second opinion on-demand scanners. Sophos is slow and doesn't give any indication of how far along the scan is. It leaves the user guessing if the scan will finish in 10 minutes, half an hour, or something else. The others just chug along and apparently do their thing.

I have a clean system. To the best of my knowledge I've never been infected. So all of the scanners give a "0 threats found" mesage. Does that mean my computer is really clean, or does it mean the scanner just didn't find something that was deeply hidden?

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so. I've got a good NVidia card in it and 3G of RAM, and there's still quite a bit it can do, but it really is starting to cause me some headaches. I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...
