Hey, before I get into this thread- let me clarify that I'm not looking to build a computer, just buy parts for it and have someone assemble it.

I primarily use my PC for C4D Rendering, Gaming, and 3D Modeling and I'm wondering what kind of parts I should look at for this.

Budget: 2500-4000

It seems like the final price would come out to be around $3000-3500 for a build with my wanted specs, but if I can go cheaper than that it'd be great.

Spent a couple days researching and I've come to the conclusion that I want a build with:
  • Intel i9 9900k processor
  • RTX 2080 TI FTW3 Ultra Hybrid Gaming GPU
  • Seagate 3 TB Hard Drive
Now with this I only have 3 items on here- and that's obviously not enough to make a build, so I would like to know what I should get to accommodate these parts with.
(I'm aware of what parts I still need, just not what I should get)

Sorry if I'm a little bit confusing- not a PC builder.

I went to Digital Storm and tested out their config- somehow managed to rack up 3800 (w/ discounts)- let me know if this config is bad/good and what I should replace.

That PC looks to be about double what it should cost.

With that type of budget, you will want top name-brand components, which that overpriced build is lacking. I suppose they put their own brand on some components and they seem to be cheap and of unkown quality.

You can go with an i9-9900K, but the much better value is the Ryzen 9 3900X especially for modeling and rendering.

Here's an idea of what I would go with.
