Here is your horrible build. Wish I coulda SLI'd 480s.
EDIT: It costs 2 grand, not worth that by far.
I am convinced... Just shows to prove that you need to do a lot of research before buying or else there is a high chance of a major rip off. With a budget of $2000, I just build the following system on newegg-
intel i5 2500k
evga gtx 570 1280mb x2 (Lifetime warranty included for evga)
Two Asus 23.6 inch monitors
corsair hx850 modular and gold certified
asus p8z68 motherboard
g.skill ripjaws 16gb
windows 7 home premium
samsung spinpoint f3 1tb
coolermaster haf x case
a normal asus disk tray
Freebies - two free copies of Duke Nukem Forever (1 for each gtx 570)
Total : $1951.88
Just now realized that I forgot to add an SSD to the system. Could probably go down on that psu, it might be a little too much. Also, I know that these parts are a little older, but they are still effective as hell and I haven't really had time to examine the new intel chips and graphics cards of amd and nvidia. This is just an example of what I would probably do with $2000, not necessarily the system that OP would want!
