Default No idea where to start! - Build

I want a new gaming computer, looking to spend about 1500.
It'd need to have dual graphics cards and 500GB to 1TB of storage would be enough.

Would be very grateful if someone could outline a build for me and a good website to buy it from, i have a friend who can build it for me, he just said to get the parts.
I don't need keyboard, mouse or monitors either!

Appreciate any help,

any reason why it has to have 2 vid cards?
a gtx285 or ati 4890 would give you all the power you you would need unless you are gaming on insane resolutions.

It would also be much cooler that sli or xf.

not sure of the exchange rate but it sure looks like you are in the Intel i7 range.

Am I correct in this the cpu you want to base your build around?

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
