Is this a serious post? If your budget is $3500 Canadian dollars, then you can build pretty much whatever you want, including a stupidly overpowered 4K monster machine.

I know nothing about computers, i was simply asking for a part list.

No need to be disrespectful/rude.

Well, sorry. $3500 is a lot of money, which led to some inaccurate assumptions on my part.

I suppose the good news is that you can build 3 x 1080p/60fps computers with that amount.

Thanks guys, but i went with this build.

It is a little bit more expensive, but i think i will get more performance with overclocking, because of the 3 coolers :D
