Hello everyone,

Before reading plz note I am asking to either tell me a good site that does build or before you throw a bunch of parts at me, plz note this would be my 1st build so if you can suggest some videos or sites that will help.

price range= $2-$3k "for 3k I would like to get 2 screens included with it"

I am looking for a new PC, I am currently a full time student for animation and 3D models for video games. I am looking to start my own Youtube channel and Streaming on Twitch, so I need a rig that multi-task, plenty of storage, fast, and can run most games on at least high settings.

But I do not know what to do I have found some sites like ironside or cyberpower who will build me a PC with everything I need but I hear bad things about CyberPower. I know people will tell me to build my own but thing is this will be my 1st build and do not want everything to go wrong and I am sitting at home with parts.

I want tons of memory, dvd/burner optical drive, need a gaming card that will allow me to record and stream on the PC. Basically I need a computer that can handle all that plus console recording rendering editing and a triple screen set-up.

I do not need, mouse, or screens I already found good deals online, or keyboard I am getting a corsair.

So anyone have suggetions on where to go to get one built or if I am to build one myself some tutorials on how to build.

I did the price factoring and both cyberpower and ironside will build computer I want within my price range $2-3k.

I also added the prices online to build my own and they are about the same.

PLZ HELP NEED THIS COMPUTER SOON.
 
There is no reason to get a 3k PC in my opinion but here mostly people can help you pick out parts to build your own because it saves a lot of money and is a fun project. something like this is pretty much as far as i would go with top quality parts and room for upgrades.

Just an idea of a 2K build to meet your needs :) This GTX 980 is stronger than a 780 ti so it should have no problem running all your games maxed 1080P at a constant 60+ FPS which is why I got a 144HZ monitor. Just a suggestion :) Other people could come up with better builds than this I'm very sure.

For that budget, you could have two graphics cards and a top end CPU all watercooled.

For some tips on how to build, this person definitely cleared up some fog for me... His name is Carey Holzman. When I started my computer building endeavor, I was completely lost on how to do anything... I gave up for about 6 months until I watched one of his videos, and I had my parts ordered and built it with almost no problems whatsoever. Here is a link to his channel:

Hope this helps!!
