This is my first computer build, and I am very excited to say the least. Like the title says, this computer will mainly be used for 3D rendering, CAD work, Photo and Video Editing, Productivity tasks, Web Browsing, with gaming in the near future. With gaming, I don't see myself going with a higher resolution than 1080p for the next couple of years, so a super-expensive graphics card I feel is a waste of money right now. The programs I mainly see myself using are:
Autodesk Inventor Solidworks Creo LabVIEW Blender Photoshop Elements/Sony Vegas (haven't decided between the two) GIMP Windows Movie Maker Microsoft Office Suite Games such as DayZ, Arma 3, etc.
Now, the parts I have already purchased in the build are: CPU Cooler, the SSD, Power Supply, Optical Drive, Monitor, Keyboard, and Speaker System. All of these except for the speakers were purchased at the local BestBuy. I do not have a graphics card on the build as I am still deciding on what GPU to set my sights on. I am really leaning towards a GTX 770 4GB, but any recommendations are welcome. With the GPU, I would really like to come in under $400.
I really want to stick with the proposed CPU, Motherboard, and RAM as I believe that would be best for my needs. However, I welcome suggestions and changes that you might have. Feel free to ask if you need any more information, and thank you for your time.
