Here are my recommendations which come in quite a bit under your budget. I'd SLI the GTX 780 but that puts you over budget. What I'd do is go with this build and when you have enough, grab another 780. I did pick parts to go with a matching color scheme too.

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($339.99 @ Amazon)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($104.98 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($199.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Mushkin Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($139.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card ($659.99 @ Amazon)
Case: Corsair 650D ATX Mid Tower Case ($163.36 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: XFX ProSeries 850W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($149.99 @ Amazon)
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($18.49 @ Amazon)
Total: $1776.78
