Hey guys
I would like to know the complete check list for the ultimate gaming editing and streaming PC under 7k USD to 8k USD. By check list I mean from monitor or monitors if you suggest dual screen to chair and stream deck.
I will be working on after effects and blender also so please keep editing in mind as well.
Thank you in advance.

The raw hardware is one thing. It's objective, X is better than Y. When it comes to monitors, or a chair etc, it depends on the needs of a given user. Not enough info to provide a definitive answer.

On the gaming/editing/streaming front, I'd look to something along these lines:

Mainstream AMD - although Zen2 (3xxx series) CPUs are right around the corner, as is the X570 chipset.

There are higher core count chips, but the tradeoff in clock speed will hurt your gaming performance.


Monitor, will depend on resolution(s) and preference (gaming, refresh rates vs colour accuracy etc).
Chair, height & weight play a huge factor.
Etc, etc.

Cool thanks for the info and any prefernce on dual screen or single? And I'm in a confusion about amd or Intel

Depends on your use-case. Arguments could be made for either/or.

Real-estate wise, you're probably better off with dual displays.

AMD vs Intel is an age-old debate, and a tough call recently.
Things like AfterEffects, I believe, still favour Intel.....

As will gaming, depending on the resolution. If you were at 4K, for example, it would be fairly negligible, most of the time.

If you're in no rush, I'd suggest holding off for Zen2. The IPC gains are rumoured to rival Intel, offering even higher core counts on the consumer front. You'd potentially get something rivaling Intel's HEDT, for consumer level money.
