Only a few things I "want" it to be able to do.
A motherboard capable of upgrading processors from a P5 to P7
able to run multiple Office applications and sufficient memory to save Photo shop CS4/5 and movies
graphics card capable of handling CS4/5

no price range really but lets just say 1300 max us dollars for case and components

If you want a computer for Photoshop I would strongly recommend waiting a (week? month? who knows?!?) bit for the Sandy Bridge motherboards to come back out. I'm sure Adobe will take advantage of Quicksync for future builds.

If you cant wait for Intel to fix their Sandy Bridge motherboards, you can get an
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Here is a bench to see the difference in the CPU performance : http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/100?vs=287 If i were you i would wait :/  Srsly SB is alot better than the i7 950, you can get an i7 1 gen. hexa-core to beat the SB but that would be a total waste of cash.

go for the built of oc_mania! very nice and powerful built there... strongly recommend Sandy Bridge (i7 2600K) K=unlocked which means, you can overclock it if you want for even more performance.

my god... He just wants to run photoshop... Your spending all his money!!! You can build it for WAY less than that.

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

gpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The rest you have to chose your self.

This is alot cheaper that his selection. ARE YOU KIDDING ME 12GB RAM? I chose 8 and THATS pushing it. You really only need 4.

I'm not sure about the p5/p7 part... But this will definetly run photoshop. Also, now that I think about it, 8gb can actually be used, srry about that. You might actually want 12gb. Your call.

He has a nice budget, why shouldnt he build a rig that will last him a long time and could be used for more than Photoshop ?

Another quote `Just want the CPU Motherboard and Memory/hard drive`
And that reminded me i didnt list a HDD :D  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And if you want (only if you want) a SSD for your opperating system and programs/games to load faster : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... you can say this is the best SSD atm, here is a review of it http://www.anandtech.com/show/4186/ocz-vertex-3-preview... . If you think its too pricey you can go with some Corsair SSD.
