Hi I'm really new to the forums so I apologise if I do anything wrong. I'm a small youtuber who is growing and I need to make a good pc for the following:
- Hardcore Gaming
- Long Renders (With all sorts of things)
- Internet Browsing
- Programming
- Art Design
- School Work
So basically I need a beast of a computer my budget is up to $1500 AUD (will go over if needed) and will most likely by locally

Thanks in advance.

P.S I have some knowledge in this area and I made a pc off a website tell me if it's good or not:

are you going to overclock a lot?
i think maybe you should get a modular psu, a little more expensive could get corsair hx series
i dont think thats a good gpu if you are going to overclock, i bought a 7970 az well but i found people saying that the asus does not overlock well.
what about an ssd to give some extra speed to your system?

The i7 3770k + 7970 will do just fine for rendering and hardcore gaming.

I made some changes and added a bigger ssd and a modular psu.. any 2*8gb 1600mhz cl9 Ram will do.. get the the low profile version of the corsair ram in this build.. corsair, gskill, mushkin, patriot and crucial are all good brands.. just make sure the heat spreader does not interfere with the cpu cooler..
