Default Building New Gaming Rig

So far this is my rig but I am open to input. I plan to take my 1kw PSU and HDD out of my current computer. For this new rig, I plan to OC the CPU to like 4 GHz, maybe more. I also plan on buying a SSD (Which I have never bought before) so I need some help choosing one, and I need a good CPU Fan, but I am not sure what to get. Was also wondering if I should get 2 video cards and sli/cross fire them or get a single video card. I heard SLi/Crossfire is a headache but yeah `_` Budget around 2k. Thanks!
