Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP ( today/tomorrow )

Budget Range: Total $2200 with PC and monitor

System Usage from Most to Least ( Windows 10 )
Graphic design ( Adobe products) - Photoshop - Illustrator - Lightroom +
Video Editing= After Effects, Premier, GarageBand
I need to be able to have several designer graphic apps open at once, all with potentially larger files .

Considerations:
1TB SSD + 4 TB SATA
64 MB Ram
Ultra-Wide monitor
Case that can fit at least another drive ( I already have )

Are you buying a monitor: Yes - would like a monitor in the 30+ range. ( $500 budgeted)

I have no components, starting fresh. Any and all help would be amazing.

Thank you - Robobergz

Well, for starters you need a robust GPU for NVENC acceleration as Mercury Cuda and CPU acceleration are legacy these days.
Something like this should be good...

I would pick 1 of the monitor. 1 is IPS and 1080p the other is 1440p and VA. Also do response times and monitor refresh rates matter to you?

We used a couple of the same parts but yours are cheaper for some reason? Does your list not include tax even though it says it does?

Prices fluctuate by the hour these days on PCPP. I didnt change any price and it does include tax, the difference is just all about timing.
I checked the same items 1 minute after your post and they were the same as the ones on the list I made, curious. It wasn't just 1 item either, it was the PSU, RAM, Motherboard all from the same sellers all cheaper than when I made my build. All of those items are also the same price as the ones on my list now all from the original same sellers as well...

**I just manually set the tax rate for the sellers to 0% and our parts lists now show the similar items priced the same. For some reason your account settings are not accounting for taxes on newegg and bestbuy.

Thats weird, I don't recollect fiddling with the settings ever. Infact on my list that board was not showing as I was searching for it, so on second thought I clicked on your list and added the board and I never checked what price it generated.
And I just checked those items and they are the exact same price as I listed and the Tax column is empty. :sarcastic:
