Gaming Rig For $2000 or less

I really need some help on this one guys, I am finally ready to build my new computer, but don't really know which hardware to get, I was thinking...

Intel i7 920 or 950
ATI Radeon 4890x2 or 5870
An Intel and AMD compatible motherboard.
Coolermaster Scout case. :ouch:
Ill just use the sound card built in with the motherboard.
700-watt power supply.

Just imagine you are in my shoes, what would you go with?
Remember the fact I'm going to overclock to Super Saiyan 5! :D

    Gigabyte 770T-UD3P/Asus 790X (no need fancy smancy mobo)
    2 x 2 DDR3 1333 CL7
    HD 5870 <--oh ya no compromises for GPU!, just non CF and look to clock it maybe
