Default $2000 Budget

Alright my friend would like a pc around $2000-2500, he will use it mostly for work and gaming so he wants dual core and a good 7800 series card. He also wants a huge LCD screen, at least 21 inches. He needs everything including keyboard and mouse. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :P.

You mean 7800GT graphics?

Oh, and he should go with a 19inch monitor to be honest. Double this price for 2 more inches?
