    Advice: My First PC build (Motion Graphics+Gaming)


      Hey everyone. This is my first time trying to put together a PC and I just want to make sure I'm getting the right parts for the money Im spending.

      The PC will be used primarily for Motion Graphics (Adobe CC suite, After Effects, Premier, and a some Cinema4D) But ALSO gaming. So a nice combo that will work well and wont bog down one another.

      Im ordering from a site called cyberpowerpc.com that pre-builds the PC and ships it to me. I would love any feedback possible before I make my purchase. My budget is flexible so suggestions are welcomed.

      Things like: the right website to order from, the right video card, wrong parts, if this is a great and sweet deal, or they are ripping me off would help me out a lot.

      -The Build-

      • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-5930K Six-Core 3.50GHz 15MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2011-V3 [+214]

      • VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 (Maxwell) [+249] (Single Card)
