2000 dollars is a good budget to start with for a build. Would you like a desktop or laptop build?
He said laptop in the post...
Also, a gaming laptop isn't the best choice for gaming "maxed out". Gaming laptops are more for gaming at Mediumish settings with "goodish" FPS. They are mostly used by people that travel a lot and don't need max settings, or people in university who need a powerful laptop for graphic design and graphically intense work.
