In effect, you want your cake and eat it too. It boils down to the specs a PC is made of. If you look at servers that get alot of use you'll find they're more results based rather than performance as they handle continuous tasks. Further, they get a slightly different cpu geared for that. The point being after a while under demands any PC will suffer, thus you build a "whole PC" best suited for the tasks at hand. That may not always refer to speed, but stability or similar needs. If you get into any budget restraints, then wait until funds are at hand.
IMHO, if you plan to do constant heavy tasks and even multiple ones on a same PC, you might find it better to split the load and use 2 PCs instead. Otherwise, you'll need the top shelf devices/items/components to get the job done from one.
I too won't get into AMD vs Intel cpus as both provide similar results from similar cpus. As for s/w compatibility that should be a non-issue.
I suggest you look at "workstation type PCs", they may provide a clue to the build you may need. Again, you need to build the whole PC that best suits your needs. So, have some top-end competent married to a less than capable one or just entry level could be telling.
