$2000 is the budget for a high-end gaming rig. This will buy you the strongest cpu/gpu platform w/ high quality parts. For instance:

Are you going to play at 1440p? Because if you're going 1080p I'd say your GPU is overkill, and if you're going 4k, then I'd recommend getting 2 GPU's. I also recommend 980 Ti over Titan X.
