Default What would you do?

If you had $3500-$4000 to build an awsome gaming PC from scratch, including a kick *** monitor what would you do? Imagine if you will this is you, how would you build this dream PC of yours?
Complete build everything from cpu to thermal grease to mouse pad if you feel the need to go into such deatail. Enjoy!
