Default Back to School Gaming Build

Hi all / Salut aux autres !

So after doing some reading (Love HC btw) I have come up with a not complete gaming build. Budget would be about 2.5 to 3k max ( Tower + Monitor) but less is always welcomed. Not a fanboy of anything but I always had Intel and it always worked wonder so..

I'm open to change everything if needed as long as it stays in the budget.

Edited august 17 !
Case : CM HAF X
PSU : Seasonic M12D 750W
MB: ASUS P6X58D-E
CPU: Intel i7 930
CPU cooler : Noctua NH-D14
GPU: 2 x 460 VS 5970
RAM: G.SKILL F3-12800CL9T-6GB
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA3
SSD: Intel X25-V 40GB
OS : Windows 7 (Anyone know if it's stil possible for students to get it at a discount price?)

Monitor : I'd love to have a IPS monitor so far the Dell U2410 would be my choice.


Bonus question : My Friend has a Acer Aspire E380 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.60 Ghz and he would like to upgrade his Ram from 2 gb to atleast 4gb or More... He Changed his Graphic card and now got a ATI Radeon 4850 HD plus a new Power Supply of 650 Watts. What you guys suggest for my friend?

Thanks / Merci
