Default Need some info

A friend of mine us planning on building a comp and I need some info as I cant help him a whole lot since I've never built a computer myself yet. Anyway the tech specs are:

2-700gb internal
1-100gb external
4gb ram
2- 3.2ghz prosessors
Nvidia GeForce card (unless anyone can recomend better)
and 3 fans and a water cooling system

Where could he get the hard drives and processors?

Internal, not external

Oh, and don't go with 4GB of RAM, 2GB is plenty

If he's that rich, he could get an Opteron, and a Dual Opteron board and http://newegg.com

They don't quite "run" at 3.2 ghz, but hey, the mhz wars are OVER!

Actually he doesnt even have a job yet but he might get one in summer that pays 320 bucks a week so I guess he's waiting for it.
