Something like this would be perfect. Take off the monitor and Windows 10 and you are looking at 2 grand..... https://pcpartpicker.com/b/7rYTwP

Sorry just noticed he has an amd 1700x but you could replace it with the 2700x and still be in your budget more than likely

Here is another good one...... Not sure what colors you are wanting..... https://pcpartpicker.com/b/bPGG3C

Here is a high end solution with RGB on the AIO, RAM and motherboard.
I added a 2080 as the 1080ti prices have climbed equal to the 2080 and the 2080 beats the 1080ti by at least a small margin in each game.
I added a monitor to take advantage of this system. If You plan to keep a,1080p monitor then you don't need anything over a regular 1080gtx.
