Hello,
I'm a 3D Artist and I recently decided to get a new PC and wanted to build myself a custom one. Unfortunatly I am a complete newbee when it comes to hardware and I have no idea where to start. Do you have any recommendation on how to start learning about hardware?
Additionally here some details on what I am using the PC for:

Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next month or so.

Budget Range: 900-1100€ / 1000-1200$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D Modeling and Texturing (blender, max, zBrush, substance painter/designer), 3D Engines (Unreal, Unity), 2D Art Programms (Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint), Games

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Headset, Mouse, Monitors (but recommendations are welcome)

Country: Italy

Additional Comments:
min 32 GB Ram, I often need to use a lot of programs at the same time when working on an asset.
Maybe a strong cooler? My room gets hot in the summer.

I think I can handle the building part, it's really just that I don't know anything about the pieces itself.
Well anyway, looking forward to an answer! Thanks!
