Racing wheelset

A year ago I started to compete in road racing. Time has come for me to purchase my first racing wheelset.

There are 2 things that you should take into account:
1. I also compete in triathlons. So I guess rim size of 40-50 should be the right for both (take into account the need to be also excellent for climbing).
2. I would like to avoid tubular and willing to accept the penalty of extra ~100gr.

I was impressed by the DT Swiss RRC 46, Zipp 404 but there are also the Raynolds and Easton EC90 SL. I left Campagnolo out due to their price.

What would be your recommendation? Can I find a fair set for less than $2,000?
