For Mudbox you need a good GPU, for ZBrush you need a good processor and RAM as it runs the sculpting in software rather than using the GPU.

Mudbox needs an 8800 gtx or better. The GPU is needed only for the video memory for Texturing and the post FX.

CPU/RAM are just as important for Mudbox.

You should favour 64 bit and lots of Ram if you want to use Mudbox the way it is intended.
