Hello everyone,

I'm trying to help my friend pick out parts and build his computer. I've got a preliminary list, however I'd like to see what some other people would create for this situation.

-

BUDGET: Under $1000, no wiggle room

USAGE: He does a ton of video editing+rendering using Magix Vegas Pro. The games he plays are along the lines of Dark Souls/Sekiro and Overwatch. He's the kind of person to leave 50 random Chrome tabs open in the background.

WHERE/WHEN: California, trying to order the parts within a day or two.

MONITOR: Yes, looking for something around $100-150. This is separate from the PC budget. Must have good colors.

NOT NEEDED: Any drives or storage. He has an ADATA SSD for OS/important programs and a HDD for storage.
