Hello!

It's just a project... Sometimes we need to dream :busy:

Well, my actual computer (5 or 6 years old) wasn't suppose to do complex 3D. I started 3D with "Google Sketchup", and now I'm doing complex scenes with Blender... So, my need grew... And I'd like to have advices about buying a new PC to play games and do 3D.

I have few questions... Do I really need a PC screen? There's still a free HDMi available on my TV.
(It's a big 16/9 TV screen).

I use CPU while rendering with Blender. (I don't use cycles)
But I'm a bit lost when I see this :

What would you recommend me fir 1000$?

Thanks!

TV can be used with computer but TV screens are usually made for static picture so using one with PC may be laggy experience. You can try first and buy monitor if not good.

 

Passmark is outdated benchmark software. 1000$ for whole machine? Where can you buy?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rwMZ6h my suggestion. Comes out to ~$800 USD, which allows you some wiggle room. Since most of your work is going to be 3d, perhaps consider upgrading the GPU to a 290X / 390X. I'm assuming you already have your peripherals.

ScathEnfys:
That partslist is ok, but I think a core i7 would be better as it is hyperthreaded and a cad card would be better than the gaming r9 380.
