For $2000 you can get something really powerful like this, but you don't need to go that high. Oh and the R9 290 Crossfire is indeed an option, but I prefer to have the more powerful single graphics card solution even if it's less powerful than two r9 290s. (This also gives you the option to add another card whenever you feel like you need more performance in the future, this won't work so well with the crossfire 290s as 3-way crossfire or sli doesn't scale well.)
