Add a good case and watercooling, and you're on budget. Ask in the water section about water cooling

Still tinkering here... I went with Corsair, since that's the only thing Scan offers. checking other vendors now

Note: I would not go Quad Core right now. Just too expensive atm. Get an E6600 and wait until Quad Core drops in price, and then replace (second half 2007, the TRUE quad core Intels will come out.)
love that setup.

if he doesn't mind noice the nine hundred is a nice case but it's freaking loud as hell.

Chozarts setup looks promising, haven't heard much about that asus board though (?). Should i wait for an R600, i don't think he's in any rush.

edit:Thanx for everyones help!

All you US guys:

While £2000 is alot, things cost more in the UK than they do in the US. Do the conversion on items from somewhere like overclockers.co.uk vs newegg.

Costs us more, probably because of 17.5% VAT -_-

Also, why blow £2000 when you could get a rig very minutely less powerful and save ALOT of cash.

E6600
P5B Deluxe
CellShock RAM (any set, they all overclock very well)
8800GTS
Tagan 1100w PSU?
dual 19" widescreen monitors maybe?
watercooling?

KK thanx noxious i see where your coming from, ill suggest that to him

His rig will probably not cost that much less than my suggestion. That Tagan PSU is nice, but pretty expensive, and not necessary, even when you go SLI with the 8800GTX.

Obviously, you can save on the components I picked. The Asus board will be out soon, and supposedly will be the best 680i board on the market. There is another Asus board though that's cheaper, and of course the eVGA one (only one currently available).

Also, Money could be saved on the video card, but I think I'd just go with the 8800GTX if you can.

If he has time, waiting for the R600 and the DFI RD600 mobo are good options. That mobo should be out pretty soon now, while the R600 is planned by the end of Q1 2007 or so.

I think the asus 680i mobo , would be the best choice.
Asus is , atleast for me , the best motheraboard maker outhere, and recently they have joined the mobo department with Gigabyte , so now you have 2 great companies building the same motherboard.
And , the more money you spend on a rig , more time it will take to get desactualized(spell?).
