I deduce you wont put the hardware on water so no point getting a 800D. Get him a good aircooling case instead.
Besides, I'm not lecturing or anything but get him something around 2.5k instead. And use the rest on something else, i don't personally see the point of going over 3k if he does not have the need to.

I agree, but OP has money to spend so it is worth getting 580s. Unfortunately the 570s blow out(literally) if you push them too hard, whereas the 580s have a stronger phase design. You will end up getting more bang out of the 580s purely because they can overclock further.

OP: Also go with a 650D, not 800D since your noob friend isn't putting it under water

I understand that your friend wants the 'best, most extreme, 1337 new computer' available, but I do hope that intelligence comes into play at some point. Simply buying the most expensive components and assembling them won't make the most 'extreme' computer.

That said, here's what I'd go with on a budget like this.

i7 2600k
EVGA P67 SLI
Intel 120GB SSD
Samsung Spinpoint F3
4GB Corsair RAM x2 or x4
Corsair AX 750
Corsair H70 H50 not currently available, H100 is the replacement for this and would be preferable
EVGA GTX 570 x2 if really necessary
Corsair 800D (your choice, not mine)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
DVD-RW

Total: $1880.71 before shipping.

Please convince your friend to spend his money wisely.

The cost is $470 for the GTX 580 or $360 for the GTX 570. I humbly submit that the GTX 570 is the point of diminishing returns. Since I was advocating for a sensible purchase above all else, I'd recommend against the GTX 580. It's just not that much better for the price, especially after considering the amount of power the GTX 580 consumes.

Also, I for got to say that the cost for the build I suggested above is $1880.71 before shipping.

Does he really WANT to burn 3k? I mean he can also burn 2k and keep the other 1k for an upgrade when the next cpy range comes out. I mean what does best mean? He's better off saying what he wants to do with it.

I would build something awesome for $2000 and spend the remaining $1000 on some quality hookers.
