Why would you want to burn 3000E on a PC?
Get one for half the money and buy yourself a bicycle for the rest and go outside! People tend to spend too much time in front of their computers nowadays ;)

You need to give us something to work on:

- What's the use of the pc
- AMD or INTEL
- liquid cooling or not
etc....

There are obviously many possibilities with this kind of budget but you must give us an idea of what you want ...

And it is quite easy to spend 3000 euros on a PC, trust me ...

Alright, here goes:

- Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD7 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 349.99USD
- CPU: INTEL I7 920 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 288.99USD
- Memories: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 389.99USD
- Graphics: ASUS EAH5970 Radeon HD 5970 2GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 699.99USD
- PSU: Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-1000 1000W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 179.99USD
- Case: Antec 1200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 159.99 or Cooler Master HAF932 159.98USD
- BD: LG WH10LS30K 10X Blu-ray Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 148.99USD
- HDD: Boot Drive: Intel X25-M Mainstream 80GB 299.99USD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Data Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 89.99USD


The total is 2607.91USD but I didn't add any monitor and keyboard. So if you need to buy them, just replace the video card with the HD5870 which is much cheaper.

I am not a specialist when it gets to choose the appropriate memory sticks and/or motherboard for INTEL. I chose GIGABYTE because that's what I am using and I am very happy with it. This selection is definitely what i would go for.

Good luck

Nick

You chose 8 GB with is dual channel, the core i7 920 supports triple channel so he would want either 3x1GB, 3x2GB or 6x2GB.

If its a work computer theres no need for a 58xx series card. The OP didnt mention overclocking so no need for such a high end motherboard

The case is obviously a personal thing, but I think the Antec 1200 is alittle to bling for work, but thats just my opinion

No need for a 1000W PSU a good quality 750W would be plenty

Yes, you are right. I keep forgetting about the triple channel ....

He said that it'd be for gaming so I concluded that he would overclock his i7 920. But ok, I suggested the equivalent of my MB for INTEL.

+1 for the case. I personally have the thermaltake armor+ 6000 (really happy with it but it is definitely a personal choice)

I went for the 1000W in case he'd like to crossfire 2 HD5970 down the line.

Anyway, INTEL builds are really not my forte ...
