Well i think:
E6600-222.90
Asus P5k WS-229.99
2x500GB Western digital hd's-188
XFX GeForce 8600GTS(the pc will also be doing video/photo editing)-189.99
G Skill 2GB DDRII 800 cas 5-119.99
I don't know about power supply....
2 HP 19" 1440x900-379.99(maybe just one 20"...)
what you think?
processor,mobo,hdd all look good.

The graphics card, i am not so sure, if he is not going to be playing games then he probably dosent need the 8xxx series card, 7950GT better card, less price. it just dosent have dx10 compatibility, but dont think he wil need it.. or EVGA 7900GS 256MB DVI PCI-E for ~ 140 euros. Give priority to processor over the gfx card though.. a mentioned above

Power supply - silverstone, ocz, seasonic, pc p&c , whatever fits his budget.

Monitor : ACER AL2017 20" LCD TFT two for ~ 350 euros , price on ebuyer , and conversion on xe.com

A 7300GT or 8400GS would be good enough.

You are still missing the most important component... what sound card?

I'm probably aiming at a M-audio, for 150$.
I just saw a pro model for 50$ more.
www.m-audio.com

I think I might be able to shed some light on the sound card. I've been doing a bit of research into them myself because my onboard sound sucked so bad. Seeing as how this system is for a dj your going to want the best sound card out there.

Right now imho the best you can get it is Auzentech's X-Fi Prelude 7.1. It has everything you could ever want. It even has full support for EAX 5.0!!! which has never been seen on a card not made my creative. The card sports digital output/inpu over SPDIF optical @ 24bit/192Khz. The input would come in really handy for a dj if he wants to mix in from another audio source. The card also boasts all the digital encoders you could want, Dolby digital live and DTS connect are the main features there. They will upconvert any 2ch sound into either DTS or DD surround.

If you want to save some money you can just step down to the Auzentech X-Meridian which is almost the same as the Prelude but doesn't support EAX 5.0. Or you can step down a bit further and get an Auzentech X-plosion or the card I got which is the Sondigo Inferno. Both still have audio input over SPDIF however they don't support EAX 5 (only up to 2.0 I think) and the input sampling rate is a step down at 96Khz although the output is still 192Khz. There are many other cards in this range too like Bluegears Enspirer or HT Omega's Striker or Claro.

What software does he plan on using?

Logic? Cubase? You need to know what platform he wants before you can pick out hardware.

Logic is available for Linux , and so are most of the audi/djing softwares.
The platform is not a problem.
Mac=overpriced!!!!!!
And about the soundcard, that is very good information, but here's what i think:
Altough auzentech makes high-quality/fidelity material, their a company aimed at audiphiles.
Now audiophiles and other sound people have similar needs.
But similar doesn't mean equal.
Those cards have a great sound card, but for e.g., most of the pro cards/hardware is a midi controller.
And they provide FULL compatability with software.
ANd M-audio makes lots of PRO AUDIO material, so i know it's a great product.
Thanks for the info man!
you got repped
