If he's looking at 2xHD(+) monitors included, you'd better put more priority on the GPUs.

I'd recommend the following....

CPU/MB Option 1: i7 2600k/Z68 (For SSD Cache and QuickSync)
or
CPU/MB Option 2: i7 3930K/X79 (Better for multi-threaded transcoding)

GPU: GTX 590 (for 3xMonitors) or Gtx 580 (for 2xMonitors)
RAM: 16GB 1600MHz
SSD 1: Intel 510 120Gb for OS
SSD 2: Mushkin Chronos 60Gb for caching
HDD: 2Tb 64mb cache, with SSD 2 as cache
PSU: Corsair HX/AX850 Watt
Sound Card: HT Omega Claro Halo (with Headphone Amp)
Case: Fractal Define R3 Silver Arrow or Antec P183/P193
Cooler: Noctura C14
BDRW:
DVDRW: x2
Mouse/Keyboard:

These parts add up to about $2,600 to $3,400, depending on the CPU/MB/GPU options above.

Then get 2x30" HP ZR30w IPS 2560x1600 Monitors to bring you in at $4,950

Wrong. This is not a gaming machine and there will be absolutely no use for lots of shader power and on-the-fly scene rendering. Any $50-100 GPU can drive big monitors to display 2D screens in various programs without any negative effect on the performance of the system.
