From what I can tell in the video card department you should be looking ant the most expensive video card you can afford.

I have an ATI card but everyone I know says you need a CUDA enabled nvidia card. Maya 64 bit doesn't use CUDA directly but will and many other programs too. If you look up CUDA in the Wikipedia you can see all of the nvidia models that support this graphics card supported rendering system-thingamabob. Try to get the highest CUDA card on the list within your budget.

Some people are running monster machines with 24gigs of ram so the more the better.
