Hello,I am looking for a computer that can run 3ds max, and do some gaming. I need it to be fast.
My budget is around 1500-2000 dollars. I do not have any parts, except a monitor. no case, HD, graphics cards etc.
No need for mouse or keyboard. no need for any software (not windows).
To be purchased within a month, maybe a little more.
I live in US, I prefer new parts, rather that used. (no ebay\preowned parts)
I prefer intel\nvidia over amd\ati. But either will do.

Not sure if you mean no need for any software, ex windows. Or no need for any software (not, ie with the exception of, windows).
Give us more details and we can see if you need more. But above build should be fine for your needs.
