Phil’s PC Build

Budget: $2,000


Note: Phil’s build is very much a multi-role machine… 1) machinima / animation creation, 3) live streaming to Twitch and YouTube, 3) video editing – sometimes 4K footage, and 4) DAW (digital audio workstation), so he had some extra storage needs that may be extreme for most setups. That’s also the reason for his insistence on 32GB of RAM.

Actual Price = $2,030 + tax

Ricky’s PC Build

Budget: $1,000-$1,200
