Default wanting to do a build but clueless on parts, help?

Hey guys I am wanting to do my first build but I am clueless about parts. I do know I have a few specific needs but other then that I'm at a loss. I need a mother board that has onboard raid drive mirroring, and the ability to run 3 monitors at once. I have a budget at most of 2k, would prefer to spend less. Any help that you all can provide would be greatly apperciated.

You are in the US so NewEgg will be the place to shop. Do you plan on gaming, or is this more of a business type of rig?

Both really, i like to play fps games. But primarly it will be used for business. Nothing to hard core like AutoCad, or any editing stuff. Need alot of ram, the software I run uses large volumes of ram.
