Building a computer soon, and I have $1800. I have made so many pcpartpicker builds but I can't decide. I wasn't sure whether I can go 2011 or not but anyway.
Peripherals: Keyboard, Mouse, and Monitor (Monitor shouldn't be included in price, just would like some recommendations)
Computer Use: Gaming, Music Production (Ableton), Rendering various graphical "things" for school (AutoCAD, Maya, etc)
Watercool: AIO would be nice
Settings, FPS: Ultra 60 FPS
Resolution: 1080, but if it can be powerful enough to get 60 on 1440 then 1440
Game Genres: FPS, RTS, RPG, MMOs, Point and Click
Games: BF4, Skyrim (ALL THE MODS), DayZ SA
Application to render: Ableton, AutoCAD, Maya,
What do you render: Audio, VSTi's,
Kind of Keyboard: Mechanical
Kind of Mouse: Palm
What kind of games: LoL, BF4...
Monitor: 24 or more, 1080 or 1440 if possible, Screen type doesn't matter, 120hz or 144 is preferable.
Other notes: Would prefer AMD for GPUs as I like to mine. I will probably need to render stuff in applications like Maya, or some other similar application but I don't know as I will not start until next year of school.
