My System Specs

Default $2000 Image Editing and Gaming

Hi guys! I'm helping a friend in the US come up with this build. He says it's primarily for CS5 and vidya gaems. He says he wants to leave things stock but I want to leave him room in case he changes his mind or at least a decent auto-OC. I mean hey with this budget, why not? I'm used to budget builds myself so I'm not too familiar with the higher performance stuff and I want him to get the best for his money! So help me, oh great Canucks of Hardware.

Here's what I'm thinking so far: - MSI P55-GD80 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I7860 - Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 998947 - SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-G1 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive x 2 (the 1TB F3s are out of stock) - ASUS Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners

Still waiting on a bit of input like if he'll be wanting a new monitor and what kind of case aesthetic he likes. Thanks!

EDIT: Looks like he likes the Raven 2 - SILVERSTONE RAVEN RV02-BW Matte black 0.8mm Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
