My budget is $1500. I can be a bit flexible on that if need be.
I am located in Seattle, Wa.
I want to use my computer primarily in a living room as a home theater for 3D blu ray and 3D gaming. When not using it for home theater, I'd like to be able to use it on a monitor at my desk (in same room) for working in 3D and video editing software. I'd also like to be able to stream this computer's desktop to my laptop so that I can work on it anywhere in the house.
More specifically, I'd like to use this computer for:
-running the Dolphin emulator in stereoscopic 3D at 1080p with 60 fps -playing current Steam games at high graphics settings, in 3D when supported, & 60 fps -editing HD video in After Effects -working in and rendering with 3D packages like Maya and Blender -working in game engines like Unity 3D and Unreal 4 -watching 3D blu rays (already have an LG blu ray drive so I don't need to buy that) -in home streaming of games and desktop to other computers and tablets -bluetooth
Peripherals I plan to use are:
-Optoma HD141X 1080p 3D DLP Home Theater Projector (which I think will require HDMI input) -3D glasses that will work (I'm not sure what to buy, tips are welcome!) -Bluetooth devices -USB mouse/keyboard, game controllers, hard drives, etc
I have a separate budget for peripherals, so these do not need to be factored in to the $1500. I would very much appreciate opinions and recommendations regarding my peripherals though.
Operating System will be Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, and I already own this.
Thank you for your time. I'm excited about this! :)
