1st build

Hi, so I have a 2009 Mac Pro 4,1. I’ve upgraded several things to it. However this 2009 model will only take me so far. Was looking into building a custom pc. But keep the macOS since everything is bootable in that format and I just prefer it that way. When I go to these websites they give me a standard price. But I have a lot of what’s already provided. How should I go about it. Where should I go in other words.
Wanting to do after effects/ animation
