I had a quick hunt on the big retailers websites and couldn't find anything with that level of graphics power for under 2k, Alienware through Dell come close at about $2200 or so, they may be your best bet especially if they have a christmas special that brings it down under your budget.

If you can spend $500 or so extra, I have a few models to suggest.

It is decent if you don't mind playing new games in medium detail.
