I was starting to think that he would want an i5 and a 960 or 970, but he also needs a monitor and keyboard (he has a mouse) and an os and i was starting to get lost with all the new products that have come out.

I will just give you an idea of how it should look like: quadro/firepro + xeon (8threaded, costs same like an i5) + 16gb ram (ecc prefferably, but not mandatory)
