I’m looking to build a computer for ~$2000.
I would use it for gaming, school work, octane, 3ds max , maya , autocad and BLENDER.
This is what I have come up with so far:
CPU:2600K + V8 Cooler $450
GPU: GTX 470 Phantom OC $400
RAM: G SKill 8GB 1600Mhz $110
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Pro $170
CASE: HAF X $240
M/K: Gigabyte M6980 + K8100 Keyboard $150
HDD: Samsung F3 1TB $80
PSU:True Power Quattro 1200 $280
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium OEM $100
I have tried to make this build with upgradeabilty in mind e.g. more RAM second GTX 470 or maybe a cheap quadro
Thankyou for any advice
