well I don't know about bang for the buck but something like this would be a monster gaming rig
MOBO: ASUS MIVE-Z: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131700
GFX: 2x EVGA GTX580 3GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130732
PSU: Corsair AX850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015
RAM: Gskill ripjaws 8GB 1866: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231455

Maybe the classified gtx580s are a bit much the GTX580 SC 3GB would be more economical. So that all comes to about $1800 USD.

Here is what I would build given the budget and the intentions, this can be a starting point for you!

All the prices are in USD and the total is converted; the links are for Newegg.ca

CPU $320 Core i7-2600K
MoBo $190 P8Z68-V Gen 3
PSU $230 Kingwin 1000W 80 Plus Platinum
Case $130 Rosewill Thor V2
RAM $88 Corsair Vengeance 16GB
GPU $300 XFX HD 6970
SSD $110 Crucial M4 64GB SSD - O/S only!
HDD $150 Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
ODD $70 ASUS Blu Ray Burner - if you don't need a Blu-ray burner - you could switch this to a DVD combo drive and save some money here!
Cooler $25 CM Hyper 212+
Monitor $210 ASUS 24" LED LCD
OS $100 Win 7 HP 64 Bit SP 1 (I have included this, assuming you are planning on running Win7)

TotalUS $1923 ~ Canadian $1960 - within the budget you had planned on (with some left for shipping and cables and stuff)!

My original pick for the case was the NZXT phantom, but looks like you guys don't have it on the Newegg site there, thats a shame, that is a fantastic case, the Thor is good too, but I would go for the NZXT Phantom, if I can anyday!

The Thermaltake G10 is another one you might want to look at, but you will overshoot your budget a little bit, and not everyone likes the way it looks, I love it!

Good luck!
