Default 2k build

Allright, I'm looking to build a new computer with a little help from you guys. I will be doing high end gaming, multi tasking (it's coming with me to college) and maybe a little bit of OC'ing. My budget is $2000 and i need everything except for an operating system.

May hey could go Sli 7800 GTX's. Just a thought.

And while the the Antec pzero suggested is good, I would go with the 600 watter from OCZ, especially for a 2 grand build.
