Is your profile your ultimate machine or something? If you actually have that, you don't need a new system, unless you like wasting money.

No u don't understand, I want a second one, slightly worse then the one in my sig. So would 1500$USD be enough? or do I have to work a bit more?

Wow. umm, 1500 is fine to make an awesome computer, I don't see the reason whatsoever for the computer itself but you certainly have more than enough to do that. If you've built before I take it you don't need much instruction?
