Default info from the forum gods

hey guys, iv been looking at this site for a few days now (from work..boring on slow days) and i had a question

I am looking or a new PC since I moved and now im PCless what I need is a machine that is capable of gaming (preferably SLI) and somthing with duel core(I am an art student and use adobe illustrator and after effects extensivly)

I'v been reading some of the posts here and you guys seem to make some great suggestions based on what people need so can you please build a complete system for me with the gaming part in mind aswell as the duel core for my artwork

ohh..my budget is flexible from $1500-$2000 cdn

so to recap what I need
SLi (or support for a second video card in the future)
Duel core
CRT monitor (19"-no less)

thank you/sorry for taking your time in advance

---so many TYPOS!

oops also sorry forgot to add..anyone know a good place in toronto to buy the parts you may suggest..or a good website on which to buy them that delivers to canaDIA!!! EH!
