What is more effective in a 2000 point army and what would you give to the terminators if you chose them? (i already have a chosen build) i will be playing again my freinds, eldar, tyranids and chaos (lol). thanks
For Termies either buy them a Land Raider and kit them for assault with LCs and a Chainfist, or go the DS route. That's my favorite. Get 3+ Icons and give them all Combi-Meltas. That's on demand armor hate where you need it. They are also good in assault the following turn.

Depends what you need more, so posting the rest of your army may help us give you advice. I can't say I have tons of experience with chosen, but I like small terminator squads with combi-plasma ds'ing to wreck terminator squads or monsterous creatures. They can turn the tide when you need them to sometimes. As Pince said, combi-melta would be (arguably) better if you need the extra anti-armor.
Posting an army list is vital. Otherwise, there's not much reason for giving specific recommendations.
As someone who has used both termis and chosen fairly extensively, I can tell you that each one is a very solid choice, depending on configurations. In fact, I'd make the very unpopular argument that our Elite options are just as potent as anything available in our Heavy slots; it's just that our heavies make an impression via mass amounts of fire and/or close combat, whereas our elites tend to benefit more from tactical superiority, and not merely hammering our enemy to death.
As Ilkar mentioned, our termis are really designed as a small surgical strike force that can- upon deep strike- lay down a suppression of special weapon volley, followed by close combat support of the spearhead. Now, that's not to say that they don't work well in larger squads, but point-for-point, the smaller ones are far more cost-effective.
Chosen: As someone who believes our best all-around infantry unit is to be found among the chosen, believe it or not, I seldom refer players to field them. Today's 40K environment isn't the kind that takes serious advantage in combining footsloggers with mech (for Chaos at least). Therefore, unless a player really understands the value and timing of proper infiltration strategy, it's usually best to avoid chosen. Then again, we play this game for fun, and chosen- like rhinos- are probably one of the more difficult parts of chaos to get down pat.
