Building a $2000 gaming computer, need ideas

Hey everyone,

I'm in the market to buy a new ultimate gaming computer on a budget. Possibly for LAN but for the most part at home. I would really like to include a Corsair 350D chassis and a 780 or 780ti. I would love to have the highest end parts as possible; 16-32GB of ram, i5-i7, etc.. A 120gb SSD, a 4TB and 2TB HDD. If anyone has any advice or questions, please let me know, I haven't been able to decide yet.
Thanks.

    I live in the US and no monitor is needed. Also the graphics card can really be any card from the 700 series

    i recommend the >>>corsair 250D<<< case.
    with the swiftech h220 you can expand the loop to the gpu. if you dont want to watercool, the cm evo is plenty.
    you dont realy need 16gb memory for gaming, 4 tb is a lot, 2gb might be enough.


    also a very very good and small case is this:

    but not every gpu fits in there...
