You forgot the video card... 6600GT as a basis, depending on what you want to do for games, upgrade to a 7600GT.

i just didnt include a gpu, he can pick one to fit his need, he said hes gaming and doing graphic stuff, so its best to get like a x1800 gto or x1800 xt or 7900 Gt.

If you are desperate for a new comp now: 7900 GTX, Athlon X2, 2 gigs.

(Recommended) Wait a few months: Conroe, DX10 Vid Card, 2 gigs, sheer joy.

you can always go onto a website that deals with building individual specs for people and you can tailor the systems on there to your needs and it will give you a price as you add things or take things away, 2000 is a great budget.
