First time PC builder here looking for advice on a high-end PC primarily used for gaming, photo and video editing. My max budget is $3000, with the inclusion of a monitor, and keyboard. I would also appreciate the build to be future proof if feasible (hence the 4820k? and the 32gb of Ram?)
Here is my PCPartpicker List for the parts that I have chosen:
nothing is future-proof. even cold hard cash devalues with time as long as you're not in Japan. technology invariably gets obsoleted very fast - heck, that's why you're buying an i7 Haswell and not an 8088!
Thanks! I was hoping to get at least 5years out of the rig. I have an older Razer mouse and was gonna opt for a 27in but thought that may have been too big. Components otherwise acceptable? Im worried at the difficulty of the installation too. Thanks for the input!
I have almost an identical system with a GTX 780 in it. It's an amazing machine. I haven't been able to stump it yet and I do high end video and gaming on it. Renders 5 mins of uncompressed 2k HD in 7 minutes with color correction and motion graphics. Have fun
