Upgrading to 64 Bit

I'm about ready to upgrade to a 64 bit PC, but I have no idea what I need to look for in specs. I'm not the sort to just buy what someone's selling. I like to make sure all the pieces are of a quality I feel I can trust.

What kind of Intel CPU is desirable?

What about motherboards?

Can I re-use my HDDs from my current computer?

I assume re-using my DVD drive is no problem.

Any other tips will be most welcome.
