I want to buy a pre-built computer and am trying to personalize the specs. I have never done this for myself before and would really appreciate some advice.
I would like to work daily on my computer for 3d coputer modeling and texture art work. I run Maya and ZBrush ( Both high polygon models) and huuuge files in Photoshop. I really prefer running these software's simutaneously as while being able to run a music player. I will of course be periodically rendering and running After Effects from time to time.
I'm looking at CyberpowerPC's CPU. I have a coputer put together that's at ~$2400. I would like to knock of about $500 (or a few hundred more if possible). My specs so far:
