Build for 3D modeling, rendering, graphic

Hi there..
I'm a animation major student and my budget is around $1500.
I don't really know about pc's spec, so I really need help on this build.

The softwares I will use are most likely; Photoshop, Illustrator,Toon boom, and Maya.

Currently i'm using mac pro notebook with intel i5 processor and it really can't handle Maya..

are the specs for animator and gaming totally different? i want specs that good with gaming as well if it's possible :D

Please do help me :)
Thank You very much
