Your best bet currently is probably some flavor of Linux for x86-64 (assuming you are buying a box with AMD64 or EM64T chip). Personally I've had good experience with SUSE SLES8/9 and Fedora FC3.

Even though 64-bit Windows might be out `soon' (http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=22246), I believe it's lacking the 64-bit compilers for building R.
