I'm new to building a PC, never done it before. I've spent a majority of my years using average laptops. I'm finally ready to commit to a solid workstation that can handle my specific needs.
- Budget: $1,000 (note: may go SLIGHTLY over depending on how essential some parts are).
- Use (gaming, rendering, etc): Adobe Creative Suite (photoshop, illustrator, maybe animate). I don't play very intensive games, but I do like modded minecraft. I know that's a huge optimized mess though. I usually multi-task between browsing, drawing. Or browsing and gaming (with guides or wikis, etc.) Like, I've survived with low FPS and low settings, so having high end graphics card isn't a huge deal.
- Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Nothing, I have two Dell monitors I'm going to be using. Dell UltraSharp 24" monitors, 60z each. 1920 x 1200 on each.
- Operating System required: Windows, but don't have to include it.
I'm in the US. Also located near a Fry's Electronics if that matters. Please help me out and give me some tips! What I could upgrade in the future and benefit from when I have more funds?
