Hmm...GTX 460 SLI - I dont think you would need to spend 2K for that...
Here is a build...
i5 760 + GTX 460 1GB
Or if you play SC2 and will be buying 1
ASUS P7P55D-E Pro + Corsair 4GB DDR3
Lain-Li K62 + XFX 650
But if you want more power(though that 650W would suffice for 2x GTX 460 though) -
XFX 750W + Lian-Li K62
HDD - This 1TB is right now at a very good price...
CPU Cooler - With this cooler, IMO 3.8GHz should be very much doable...
