Phil’s PC Build

Budget: $2,000

Components

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
