eVGA 7800GTX Video card 459.00
2 10k rpm Raptor HDD's 207.00

Thats 1834.31. Doesnt have a case since thats something you will need to decide. Dont worry about the Nvidia/ATI conflict that goes on around here. Some people swear by each card. These are my suggestions for a 2k build. If you build one make sure to post it up here.

I say go with a 74gb raptor, AND a normal 250 gb or something. Thats like, 1



Thats only about $50 dollars more for 74% more space than 2 of those 36.7 raptors.

i like pzero's suggestion i was going to say something similar. i probably would have reccomended OCZ ram though. if you want to channel more money into getting the best parts you can be sure to re-use parts that you can live with i.e. hdd and dvd-rom drives.
