I'd look at recent journals and conference proceedings to get a feeling
for who's doing interesting work in the field. Check the bibliographies
-- they'll tend to show you who's respected and what conferences and
journals are respected.

In general, I recommend that you concentrate on finding the advisor you
want rather than worrying too much about the school. A great school won't
be useful if there's no one there to work with. That said, schools you
might look at include

U of Illinois
U of Washington
Georgia Tech
U of Virginia
U of Wisconson
Cal Tech

They're not listed in any particular order and I've certainly missed a
few. Some are oriented more towards architecture or compilers, but
you get the idea.
