Macs are great for more than everyday things, no questions, doubts or rants about it, especially while i’m typing on the macpro now; but you know what they’re not great for? rendering & editing, unless you’ve got $5,000–$10,000 for a fully loaded IMAC (i know i didn’t) nor would i spend that much on a computer, we went towards the custom built PC route and here’s how easy it is.
Specs & Pricing -
Processor — Intel Core I7–5820k 3.3GHZ ($388.99)
MotherBoard — MSI X99A Raider ($194.99)
Memory — Viper DDR4 32GB ($159.99)
Graphics — GeForce GTX 970 ($294.49)
SSD — Samsung 250 850 EVO ($90.99)
Now these 4 core necessities are already $1,038.46 but we’re off to a great start.
Fan — Enermax T40F-RF ($38.99)
Power Supply — Antec VP550F ($59.99)
Case: Corsair 300r ($69.99)
TOTAL = $1,298.42
All these were bought and priced at fry’s.
PROTIP** Fry’s will price match any and majority of their competitors; this probably saved me about $150
Now you’re probably asking, how long does it take for me to put all this together? well, fry’s also can piece & build it together for you for $40
Now go build and get rocking on your new system!
