Hello, I am planning to buy a new PC and I was wondering which should I buy?

I mean I am planning for I7 (4th generation) Asus asrock Z87 and 16GB machine but I am going to use it for mostly for Photoshop, 3D applications (like Maya), After effect rendering and video editing. I am bit confused should I buy higher version CPU and motherboard or should I buy higher graphic card and RAM? which configuration will be better for nice performance on above application and gaming as well?

My budget is Rs.85000 ($1000)

i would use an i5 4760k and 16g of ram and the best gpu you can buy. the more cores the gpu has then the faster your video will render. with the i5 or the i7 there the same core speed. the i7 just has hypertherding or four virtual cores. a lot of people doing video editing if there not going to game on there pc look at server mb and two low end intel or amd cpu. with two cpu and a lot of ram it helps on large video editing.

So mate If I go for i5 as you said that mean I won't get the best gaming experience from it? and just an quick question again for rendering purpose you going to need more RAM and nice GPU...right?

rendering uses the pc as you would if you were a hard core gamer. more ram and good gpu helps rendering.

Heavy duty photo and video work will benefit from the i7 4770K if it can fit in the budget, the Hyper Threading greatly enhances that type of work, 16GB of DRAM is good (would suggest 1866/9 if it will work budget wise, else 1600/9 at a minimum), then the best GPU you can pick up in the budget
