Default Building a $2000 Gaming PC

Hey guys, i plan on building a Gaming pc in the near future and i dont want to get parts that dont work,(or dont work well)

i plan on buying the parts from newegg, and i already have 2 lists (one a friend made for me) that are possible configurations....

if they dont work to well then feel free to edit or modify them (or start from scratch) if you like

it cant be more then 2000 american dollers (maybe a little over for shipping)

and with the gpu that u recomended, will it last me a while.......becuase i dont mind paying for top of the line stuff now, instead of paying for "OK" hardware now and then having to upgrade in the near future

cant see any real issues myself, great processor, but if you want the GPU to "last longer" then id recommend getting something a little better like a 7950GT or even better a 8800(the 8800 will last you a long time)

4GB RAM wouldnt help enough to justify paying double the cash. It might not help at all.
