Get a higher end video card with whatever system you decide to buy and windows 7 64 bit with 8gb of memory.
Before you buy, run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor on your current system and see what it says about your application programs. When the analysis is done then you'll see twoTABS at the top. One is for 32 bit and the other for 64 bit. Since you are planning to buy a new system then ignore the hardware and driver issues. Just review the applications.
Look at the HP HPE-180t as it has the blu-ray writer. Start with the base configuratiion and add the upgrades you desire.
