I know there are a few other threads like this but I think what I am looking for is a little different. Mainly, I really don't like multimonitor setups at all. I currently have a somewhat aging 1900 x 1200 monitor that I plan on replacing later this year with a 30 inch 2560 x 1600. I would like to go ahead and build my gaming rig now and just use it with my old monitor until I get the new one.
So what are your suggestions for a $2000 build that would get the best possible performance in games on a single 30 inch 2560 x 1600 monitor? I only care about gaming performance since I use my work laptop for any other applications.
I already have a monitor, mouse, keyboard, and OS (windows 7) so no need to include those.
Thanks for any help and wisdom.
Edit: Here is the breakdown:
