My initial plan was to upgrade the memory on my Dell XPS laptop from 8Gb to 16GB. Unfortunately, the motherboard could not support more than 8GB; so I decided to invest in a good PC.
I did my research and decided to build it myself. My budget was around CAD$2000-$2200.
I bought most of the components from Newegg Canada and the rest from NCIX Canada.
I use it for my 3D modelings and renderings, Photoshop renderings and basically running many memory and CPU intensive applications at the same time.
Later in the winter I added another SSD for my storage purposes.
