Good day, I'm Juan from Colombia, but live in France.

I was interested to join this community to learn more about how I can build my own computer to do animation on Unreal Engine, both 2d and 3d, as well as video editing. I'm trying to buy a computer or build one, so would really appreciate your feedback!

I already looked it up, the new MAC with 8TB of RAM and all the good specs, costs me around $4,500 dollars. That's an insane amount of money. I have decided it'll cost me less than half to build my own PC. Yes, I really wanted a laptop, because I do travel a lot, but a PC will do for now.

The site gave me these suggestions:

CGDirector.com Parts List: https://www.cgdirector.com/pc-builder/?=6NoVX

CPU: Intel Core i5 12600K 3.7GHz 6-Core Processor ($277.99)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 ($89.90)
Motherboard: ASUS Prime B660-PLUS DDR4 ATX LGA1700 ($139.99)
GPU: Nvidia RTX 2080 SUPER 8GB - MSI Gaming X Trio ($494.07)
Memory: 32GB (2 x 16GB) G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3200 C16 ($94.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Seagate FireCuda 530 1TB NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive ($119.99)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx Series RM750x 750W Power Supply ($147.29)
Case: be quiet! Pure Base 600 Black ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.90)
Total: $1454.12

However, wouldn't it be better to have an Intel Core i9, an RTX 3090TI 24GB, and other DDR5 components? Any other thoughts on how I can make this computer as powerful as possible without going past my budget. I want a computer that can run the most heavy things in Unreal Engine 5, animation programs and video editing for the next few years.

It certainly would. Did you set your budget to a higher amount than 1500$ in the PC-Builder?

I had not set up the amount higher than 1500. Thank you.

Would you be able to recommend me please where I can buy computer parts cheaper in the U.S. than ordering on Amazon? For example, this graphic card on amazon costs 1,600. That's insane no? I'm sure it can be found cheaper somewhere else? Any suggestions would be great.

EVGA 24G-P5-3975-KR GeForce RTX 3090 XC3 Ultra Gaming, 24GB GDDR6X, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate

What do you think about this computer build here?
