Need help building a gaming/editing PC for $1800-2400

Hi I'm new to this website and I was wondering what would be the ultimate gaming/editing PC for around $2000. Also how much more would I have to spend for something like a gtx 690. I don't want SLI cause I heard theirs a few problems that come with that. Prefer Nvidia as well. Also any place to buy in Australia are appreciated.
Thanks to anyone who can help me

    Please 1 post per topic......do not double, triple, quadruple post. I would not use a 690, just doesn't make financial sense. There are no problems that come with SLI at this budget level. For Crossfire issues, you can read these and judge for yaself:
