  1. there are 2 roads or you to take... :P

    either get a kickass gaming pc for 2000$ or a disney pixar-style workstation with that money. why so much you ask? because 1 processor would cost as much as the gaming pc put together. or get a pseudo gaming/workstation pc which aint amazing at either but can do both fairly well.

    2 hdd for back up
