Question Need Help With A $7,000 USD Build

Apr 24, 2019
Hi there, first time poster. I got directed to this website for a query on a high end system build.

I have a client wanting a build with specific requirements, maybe not too specific. He wants to able to plug in a system and not have to worry about troubleshooting and all the components working well together, hence he's paying a high price tag. He originally was quoted sometime late last year. He's happy with the highest end cpu and gpu, he would like to stay with Intel and Nvidia. Looking for anything 2-4TB on the OS SSD and anything up to 6TB for a backup HDD. Nothing raided. Also he specified a 1200 W PSU. Some little extra notes, is that he would like USB ports on the front (3.0). As for the case and aesthetics, he wasn't too specific; but something that looks more serious than RGB fun. I would like to make it look "expensive" for him, if that makes sense.

If you could help me out I would greatly appreciate it. I'm not too familiar with higher end components and how well certain brands and models work together.
It cant get better than this...

Sounds like this client does not really know why he wants what he wants even. You can build a $500 system that will work when you turn it on. I mean if you build a computer with parts that don't work together it won't work, pretty simple.

So to get the right system without wasting $6,000 on junk he does not need, what exactly is the use for this system? If this is for gaming, or even high end business use, a $3000 build with even a good monitor/keyboard/mouse setup is more than enough, unless he works for Pixar and wants to render movies using this.
Like hang the 9 said, what's the computer requirement?

7k for the pc and the peripherals?

Is he looking to game at 4k 144hz?

Has a 500gb game drive planned? Then a 1tb ssd would be enough.

We can select premium looking parts, all addressable and synable rgb components to make it truly customisable build. And even then it won't cost 7000 usd.
