First build: Gaming- Capturing & Rendering

This is my first computer build and I am not that knowledgeable when it comes to these kinds of things. I need a computer that can play PC/steam games at, preferably, their maximum resolutions while also being able to capture and render for video format (Youtube). I do not have any preferences, whatever will work best for the price is fine.

My budget is $2500-3000. I live in the US.

Thanks to everyone that helps out.

Can you answer these questions?

  1. What resolution?

  2. How many monitors Silly question but just making sure... I can fit 2 1080's under your budget

  3. Want Peripherals?

4.Want it to be Semi-Future proof ?

  1. 1080p

  2. I was planning on just one, but should I get more?

  3. Sure you can include peripherals.

  4. Best you can fit into the budget.

2 monitors are more for multi-tasking. So you can have your browser open on one with a game on the other... A lot of people also have their game stretched to both for a larger FoV

This computer should pretty much destroy 1080p in gaming and will last long time before it gets outdated.... Also if you feel like overclocking, the motherboard is able to do so.

Side note: Feel free to select different peripherals as these might be a personal preference brand of mine (Logitech is still a good high quality brand) and if you wont be using Disc games or movies, feel free to take off the drives but I think you'll want one unless you can get the OS on a USB drive

That PSU will break down when the cards are over-clocked and on load.

You can downgrade the number of SSDs and HDDs, the videocards from 2 to 1 to be able to buy other peripherals within that budget of yours, but should you go with the exact list, this should be able to carry you for a good amount of time.
