Default Whats the best overclocking dual core sys you could build for 2k

I feel like spending $2,000 for x-mas maybe more depends how much i get in total but whats the highest overclockable sys i could build for that price thats dual core. I might be able to get $3,000 but its all a matter of luck.

2000 for the entire build not just the processor I assume try looking into the following card high powered for the upper end standards.

When the socket 939 Opterons first came out people were hitting 3ghz on air, and that is stock cooling. Now you will be hard pressed to get passed 2.5ghz on aftermarket air and high voltage. BTW, Opterons (165 and up) are dual core.
