Hello Everyone,

This is my first time building my own PC. I want to build a triple monitor display computer, I want to use it to edit, upload, and render videos for YouTube. I also want to be able to livestream via twitch.

I really want to go all out, with terabytes worth of memory. I want this computer to be fast and able to handle multiple programs running at the same time.

Also want one of the monitors to be able to have HDMI hook-ups so I can play Xbox or PlayStation right at desk to record my playthroughs.

Case I want to build around: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case, support up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, come with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan

My budget: $2,000 Absolute Max: $3,000

I really am looking for help, I want to build a right computer for the job and do it right. Hoping to build a great business with this and want to produce good content.

Also if someone can tell me what kind of software to use for editing and recording?
Also if a mic or headset is better for vocals?

There is no such thing as a consumer grade computer wit a terabyte of memory.You mean you want a terabyte hard drive. Most motherboards support 32 gigabytes of memory. It is a tad short of a terabyte. ;)

Why?

1. A professional microphone setup is better for vocals than a headset.
2. You're investing alot of money in what seems like something you're not experienced in and have no proven track record of being successful at.
3. It's very hard to make any money doing Youtube videos and Livestreams. And everytime someone new tries to get into it, it gets harder for everyone else. Imagine you're all fast food franchises opening up shop in one town, and a lot of you will fall under similar franchises, and some of you will be different. There will be alot of McDonalds and Burger Kings, offering the same but slightly different stuff (but each McD and each BK offer the same stuff) so people just go to whatever one is now closest to them.

But here's a build for you that's more in line with what you need:

I thank you for your concern. But I am a big time gamer and I have recently come into money to do what I have a passion for. If I get a partnership and make money from YouTube or Twitch then that is fine by me.

I am in school for both video game programming and design. I know im putting a lot of money into this PC but this is a dream of mine and thats why I want to follow it.

You dont need to tell me the risks that come with this I know but if you never take a chance then you will never know if you will succeed.
