I'm a graphic design student and I would like to upgrade from my laptop to a desktop PC.
However, I have no experience with builds and would appreciate if someone would be kind enough to help!

Budget: $1500-2000NZD

Use: Adobe CC (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Premiere), Cinema 4D, web design, and light gaming.

Components I have: I do have a monitor that I'll use if I don't have enough money left for a new one. Other than that, I'll need everything else.

Specifics: I don't have much space! Ideally, the build will be as small as possible without compromising quality.


I understand that this may be a super tight budget to work around (I don't really know how expensive inner components will be), but I'd rather wait and save up rather than resort to a lesser quality build.

There are a few items I know I want already, and those are:

Dell Ultrasharp U21417H 24" monitor,
Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Keyboard & Mouse,
Corsair Carbide ATX mid-tower case.

Those three things make a subtotal of $627.90, but I will hold back on the monitor if $1372 doesn't leave enough for a decent quality PC that meets the requirements of what I'm doing.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks Angel

Hey, thanks for putting that together! ^

I looked up all the components and they look good as far as I can tell.
I see I have a little bit left over so I'd like to swap out the suggested case for the Phanteks elvov shift mini itx, if that's possible? (just for looks haha)
I obviously won't be able to get a new monitor or keyboard with everything else coming to the quoted amount, so that can be for another time.
But would I be able to get a wifi and blue tooth adapter put in as well?

Thanks so much!

I have updated your order to include the new case and new motherboard with Wi-Fi.

Hey,
I'm guess the $1999 is without the corsair case? I notice it is still on the list. Sorry, I would chheck myself but I don't know where to find the individual prices of each item :)

Morning Kale.i,


Apologies for that, I had accidentally left the second case in.

I have updated your quote for you to show the correct total.
