  1. Well you don't really need $2000. An i7 4770k, 16gb of DDR3 1600mhz, motherboard, and 700w power supply should cost you somewhere around 700 or 800, from there it's mostly video cards and hard drives. I'll link what I would get for $2000.

    I don't know if you need to buy a monitor, windows, keyboard, mouse, etc with that $2000 so I left so extra cash to spend on those things.

    +1 for this. Although if you want more silent operation get the Noctua nh-d14 for cooling you CPU.

    No if you want better silent operation you should get a closed loop liquid cooler especially since the Ivy Bridge and Haswell's tend to run much hotter compared to the other generations due to the terrible TIM. Also didn't include a case in that build so might as well tack on another 100. That and the 2TB drive you went with is garbage, it's got a seek time roughly 10x slower than most.
