Maybe he watches blu-Ray movies on his PC? Why do you care? I personally don't do it but I could give a **** if he wants to.

A little over budget, but this what I would do if I had such restrictions as you put on yourself.

If you really wanted to do it right, spend 3k so you can have your computer, upgrade your home network infrastructure, and get better monitors for a nice eyefinity/surround setup.

You may never need to use it, but should you need it, it's nice to have.

Or, like in my case, I have a tv..but I don't use it. I play everything through my computer, specifically netflix blu rays that come in since the streaming is quite limited.

After monitor/m/KB you'll be over basically whatever the m/KB cost. I'll let you pick those out since they're up to preference more than most other parts.You said going a bit over wasn't a problem and I think it would be worth it personally.

I don't really have a lot of experience with monitors to suggest one of those either. This is what I have and it's basically the only modern one I've ever used. I don't have any technical info on the color accuracy but I'm a painter and nothing really jumps out at me as wrong and everything is consistent. I've been really happy with it but there might be better in the price range, though at $144 I think it'll be tough to beat.

Not bad.

The 4670k and z87 motherboards suggested before are newer models and are a little more powerful but are the same price as the previous models.

I'm not too sure about the cooler as it looks like the mount is plastic and it seems to use push pins to hold the cooler on.
The Hyper Evo suggested before has all metal mounting hardware with nuts and bolts to hold the cooler in place.
The Hyper Evo also uses a 120mm fan which is a much more common size and there are a large number of options to choose from should you ever need to replace the fan.
