Default computer build

I have around $2k to spend on a new computer build. I am looking for suggestions on what should be put in it. I will be using this computer mostly for gaming and i dont need a monitor, keyboard or mouse.

If you can go with an AMD FX, go for it. Games don't utilize dual core processors yet so its essentially useless for gaming.

But it might be a good Idea to plan for the future.... Seeing that multi core games will come out soon enough

But if you want really good performance like this instant and you don't mind buying different computer parts soon go ahead

a dual core performs the same around a 4000+ in gaming

dual core performs way better then the 4000+ in multi tasking

dual core is way better then the 4000+ in general


X2
2GBs
2 7800GTXs
WD raptor and one big one for backup/data

which x2 should i get though? how much of a difference is the clock speed gonna make?
2x 7800gtx, 2gb ram, and an x2 sounds expensive too
