Hey guys,

Would be awesome to get a quote for a rig considering the following details:

Budget / Price Range:
- $3400

What will it be used for:
- Core use will be day to day work with 3D modelling & rendering, video editing & rendering etc
- VR sometimes

What components you do/don't require:
- Looking for whole tower excluding peripheral (e.g. no mouse, no keyboard)
- Keen to include 2x IPS monitors (1920x1080 is fine)

Notes:
- Windows 10 installed
- Pre-built ideally
- Simple functional case is fine
- 1x SSD, 1 x 2TB HDD

Afternoon Waltman,

I have quoted up a well-balanced workhorse for you which will be fully capable of gaming on the side.


The higher frequency CPU will help a fair bit with CPU based workloads and can be improved by overclocking the core speed for added future proofing.


Have a look over the below quote and let me know what you think/ if you would like to make any changes.

Amazing thank you!

Are we able to upgrade to a 500GB SSD.

I'm also looking at pushing the budget to $4000 total - what area do you think would be best to invest that in? GPU rendering?

Afternoon Waltman,


I have upgraded your GPU to a GTX1080 for improved GPU performance as well as your requested SSD upgrade.


At this stage you could upgrade the GPU or CPU to improve performance though both would push you above the 4k mark and likely won't be needed (CPU is more cores)


let me know what you think of the below.
