A little more information is necessary.  Will you be buying this in the United States?  Are you gaming or doing other computationally intensive tasks, and, if so, what are they?  Do you have all the peripherals such as monitor?  If you have a PC already, will you be reusing parts?

With that budget, wait for AMD Ryzen. Launch early March (March 2?)

I agree with Drillingmachine, waiting for Ryzen would be a good idea.  Since you are a gamer, you may want to also wait for AMD Vega line of GPU's.  Regional availability and taxes may limit what you can use since not all sites will ship to Lebanon if you cannot buy a particular part in your country.

Dell computers are the way to go on this topic.

At such a high price point, building is the way to go as you start making savings. You also know what goes into your PC and it won't come with Bloatware which can slow it down.

I agree with building if you can do it and one has the time to build it and test it for stability. OEM machines can actually be a very decent alternative for a build as a gaming unit as long as the power supply is replaced, and a nice SSD added, although in some OEM machines the space is limited inside the case for install of longer GPU.

You can build a quite respectable Z270/7600K/16GB/GTX1070 rig for about $1000...

 

You can build a very nice one for $1450 (add 2nd GTX1070 in SLI)

 

You can build a 'super-nice for 4 years' rig with twin GTX1080s, but, that will blow your entire $2000, not really needed unless you play at 4k res.....

 

If you feel like the extra 100 MHz and hyperthreading might help. the 7700k is about an extra $100 in cost at $349-ish....

And now that the Ryzen 1800X is known to rival only an i5/6600k in most gaming titles, we can instead devote less money instead to the 7600K, and, perhaps at least one 1080Ti coming out in 3 days....? :) (If you reused existing storage, already had an 850 watt PSU, and a 4k monitor, you could easily SLI a  pair of 1080Tis for $1400 alone, devoting the remaining $600 to  a 7600K cpu, Z270 mainboard, and 16GB of RAM; such a system would be the envy of the entire gaming world for probably 2 years...)

With $2000 budget, Ryzen is much better choice than 4C/4T CPU. As GTX 1080 Ti is still not using HBM2 memory, saving from video cards is right option.

I can't argue with that. Higher resolutions eliminate the bottleneck that any Ryzen 8c/16t CPU would have as opposed to a higher priced 4c/8t I7 7700k CPU.

He did say gaming rig, correct? Can't really see the point of paying more for less performance (over a 7600K) in 95% of gaming titles for a gaming rig. (If playing at less than 4k, the R7 is a tad behind in gaming framerates; and, it costs more than a 7600K)

Well, if OP is gaming at a higher resolution then Ryzen will probably be the better choice. Especially if he's keeping his PC for a while due to games using more and more cores. At 1080p, a i5/i7 would be enough so he can spend more on storage/GPU/Cooling etc...
