That's the best I could do. Quad core with hyperthreading. Usefull for gaming/streaming at the same time and multitasking in general. Very solid GPU. Nothing is cheap or bad quality in this build.

The Xeon is gonna be great for rendering and 16GB of RAM will help as well. You could add an SSD for extra speed though I didn't include it since it's more expensive than a regular HDD.

I don't think you can have all that for such little budget

I'm not sure it's possible with that budget. Might be possible for just the PC alone but taking monitor and other peripheral into account.... I'll try to make a list as cheap as possible with dual monitor instead. We'll see what I can do....

I can go up to an additional $400 for peripheral and monitors
