I agree with birdcat’s specced system, but I think you can build that system for $2k.
I can not recommend any of the name-brand pc’s out there, I believe them to all be junk.
Asus P5 MB + quad core $400
4G Ram………. $50
video card ….$200
2x 1T hd set up as RAID 1 … $200 (seagate or maxtor… NO WESTERN DIGITAL!)
your favorite case and power supply: $200
he already has the mouse and keyboard.
make sure your monitor(s) can display 1920×1080!
and as composite pointed out, by all means check out the other thread.
