hello! i am an illustrator/artist and it's time for a new computer so i decided to build it. i've been reading up on parts but this is my first time and it's all a little confusing to me

my budget is $1300-$1500 I am located in California USA I will be using this computer for adobe photoshop & illustrator primarily .... and maybe video editing in the future (this is secondary)(but i'm willing to spend a little more to set my computer up for this) i need all the things (mouse, monitor, housing, etc) no preference for operating system

i am comfortable buying used, especially for the monitor

any help is much appreciated!
