Default help: 2000 budget gaming comp

I just sold the motor from my car and have at most 2K to spend on a comp. I dont want it prebuilt but i need everything to build one, not including monitor, keyboard, ect.

I want to play games like Fear, dod source, ect.
I dont really know about overclocking but wouldnt mind having one built for it. I also want something that is going to last and not need to be upgraded for a while.

Let me know what to get

If that fits his budget, that would be perfect.

Everything I listed only adds up to 1747.92$

So you can go cheaper in some areas because you still have to get
Fans (Ull need quite a few to make sure this puppies cool)
Case
RAM
Motherboard
Heatsink (If you want a better one)
Speakers (if you don't have them already)

No you don't, But for RAID you need at least two. RAID 0 Increases the speed at which files are written and read. So its a preformence "thing".
