Help With First Build

  • 53 months ago

As stated in the title, I'm looking into putting together my first PC. I'm looking to get into 3D animation, but I'm completely new to it. So, I don't want the build to just be a workstation. I also am planning on doing some light gaming. Not anything demanding, maybe Pillars of Eternity, or WoW. I don't have and old PC, so Im starting from scratch. I also already have an OS but, no keyboard, mouse, or monitor. And as far as a case goes, Iike the Fractal Design Define R4. Basically what I need is, an everyday PC, a Gaming PC, and a PC to learn the ropes of 3D animation in one, for $1000-$1500. Thanks for reading.

i7 5930K, any X99 mobo under $300, R9 390, 16GB DDR4, 250GB SSD, 1-2TB HDD (Hitachi or Seagate), then use the rest for a case and any power supply that isn't bad (do a bit of research, but avoid Corsair CX, EVGA standards, G & T2 are fine, many more) guessing this should fit the bill, you may want to cut down on the CPU back to a 5820K to save some money.

That's how I'd do it.

Read the description before asking dumb questions and post a single reply not one for every question

Before you going around telling people they are dumb you should proberly know that he added them because I asked him to. The questions would have have been dumb if I hadn't asked them. But yes. Now he has updated the original post I will delete the now irrelevant questions.

I've been using a laptop for the last few years so, I'll need to start from scratch. I already have an OS, and I was thinking a red color scheme. As for the case, I like the Fractal Design Define R4 Mid in Black pearl. Sorry if I should have answered those questions in the OP.

Not quite big enough. I won't be needing CUDA, I think.
