for 2 thousand hmm......lets see here....

DFI Lanparty UT Ultra-D-$125 or so

AMD Opteron 165-$380

2x1GB G.SKill- not sure of this price i'd guess around 150-200$

Your video card is pretty good, but if you want to upgrade it go with a eVGA 7900GT-about $300

if you already have a good monitor, keep it, if not go with a good Samsung Syncmaster or Viewsonic, i suggest the
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116375
its like $360 or something

Logitech z-530 5.1 speakers which is about $60

and thats about 1.4k i guess, which leaves about $600 for optical drive, hard drive, mouse key, and sound card ( suggest creative X-Fi)

hows that?
