Umm... Best within reason would be a i7 920, SLI 295's, 6GB RAM 1600Mhz, blu-ray drive and wc cooling setup.

 

The gfx cards will run you about 1000 themselves, and the rest of the stuff would be another thousand or so.

 

especially considering you would need a 1000W PSU to clock those where you would like them. 295's are 289W each, i7 can get to 210W with D0 stepping running prime at 4.5Ghz with however much voltage you need to get there, and using a barely there PSU generally ends up being trouble anyway.

I'd say run a Phenom II 940 system w/ DDR2, maybe two 260's or two 4890s? a 750W should handle that fine.

I've done some research, and I've found that you can actually build a decent Core i7 system for $1000. Here are the specs:

 

Processor: Core i7 920

Mobo: MSI x58m

GPU: GeForce 9400 GT

RAM: OCZ Gold XTC 3GB Tri-Channel Kit

HDD: WD Caviar Black 500GB

Optical Drive: LG GH22NS30 Super Multi Internal DVD-RW Drive

Case: CM HAF 922

PSU: Antec Basiq BP500U

Monitor: 19" Monitor

 

You can get all of these for $925 at Newegg, Buy.com, or Zipzoomfly. The beauty of this system is that it can be upgraded and become basically the ultimate system! Hope this meets your criteria.

lol the 9400GT and 3GB are not decent in my book (mainly the video card)

He could get a better cooler, graphics card, hard drive and maybe even a better monitor if he goes the 940 route.
