Here is yet another PC build question thread, but here we go.
I have been trying to piece out a PC for use as a gaming PC and an workstation. For the most important part (the work) I need a fairly high end video card to render 3d in blender and occasionally Sketch Up, 2d in Illustrator and Photoshop on preferably two monitors. On the gaming side, I don't much care for ultra high end graphics, but I'd like to run most games smoothly and at a good resolution. Overall, I'm looking to spend about $2000 including monitors.
I'm surely open to suggestions and substitutions, because on the hardware side of everything, I don't have a clue. Based on my digging, I've got this:
I don't have a case lined up, so I'm open to suggestions on that. I also haven't looked into monitors, but I need at least one that can be oriented vertically.
