which part of the computer is most important for blender?

i’m getting a new computer, and the most heavily taksed thing would be blender cycles, so, which part of the computer is the most important for blender cycles? ie, i wouldn’t imagine that sound card can be that useful in blender, therefore i can loose some money out and get a better part which is more important

I think keyboard and some kind of control device, like mouse or drawing tablet.

The GPU is certainly going to matter with regards to rendering speed and the size of scenes you can render. I’ll make a shameless plug for the FAQ I’m maintaining in my signature :wink:
