Question Help me build a computer?

Oh yes. It's that time. I need a new computer from the bottom up. I'm tired of my dell piece of Poop, and looking to spend around $2500(more or less). Now, before you guys jump on Newegg... I live in Canada. As far as I have seen, Newegg only ships to America and Puerto-Rico. So this might be a little bit of a hunt.

So, I need a new case, and all the guts within it. If you find a nice LCD(19in +) don't hesitate to throw it on here. Btw, It's going to be for Gaming mainly so I need POWAH!

Question: Would you think my budget is still within SLI and/or Duo Core territory?

Thanks in advance and let the games begin!!(errr...)
