Went to www.ibuypower.com and started looking around, I think I have found the perfect setup for me with a budget of 2,000$

Please Review each part and suggest whether or not I should change something, I am not living in america btw.

What the hell? Dual HD4650's? Are you sure about that one? How about a HD5770 or HD5850?

my only opinion would be is to do a LOT of research before you buy something! 2 grand is a lot of money! Look up on differnt sites, there are tons of sites out there...see what they all have to offer, bargain, negotiate and find the one you like.
