I was wondering if this met your guyses approval:

Intel Pentium D 805 2.66GHZ (OC to 3.8ghz)
Asus P5WD2 Premium
XFX 7900GTX EXTREME
OCZ 2GB Kit PC-5400 667MHz
WD Caviar SE SATA-II 200GB, 7200RPM
Thermaltake (Silver) VB1000SWS Soprano Case
Nikao Best Power 500Watt ATX
ZALMAN CNPS9500LED (heatsink)
ACER AL1916B LCD (Black) 19" monitor

now that not including the DVD burners, network card, floppy drive, speakers, or keyboard.
I was first thinking of getting a AMD - Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core (3800+) 2.0 GHz and a Asus A8N5X NF4 motherboard but after reading the thing on the front page of the site (when the guys OC the intel processor) a couple of days ago i changed my mind.
Anyway say what you think of it please.

May need a bigger power supply since that processor rapes the PSU when highly overclocked. Also, if you are going to drop that much money on a new system why not wait for the Core 2 Duo to come out. Yes it will be more expensive, but the money you save on your utility bill will probably make up for it in a years time :)

I don't know about 2.3k on this computer... but I can for sure build a way better computer with that much money.

It's kinda bit overpriced... for stuff you paying, probably except ur 7900gtx...
