New to building. Where do I start?

 Share

Budget (including currency): $1500

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for:   Roblox, Obey, recording, streaming, Blender 3d Modeling

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):  

I want to build a PC for the first time, but I have no idea where to start. I know of the website pcpartpicker. I don't know what I should buy though.

recording, streaming, 

In all honesty, these lend me to say Nvidia GPU. With how hard graphics cards are to get, you're better off getting a prebuilt right now.

Something like this would do decently well, you'd just want to upgrade storage at some point.

Edit: 

Found a better deal.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

You have a budget so that is a good start. My rule of thumb is a third of my budget for the CPU, half the price of the CPU for the motherboard. Right now half your budget is going to go for a video card so be ready for that. Look at the CPU as that will lead you to what motherboard/chipset to use. Do some googling for "best cpus for streaming." Once you've read a few article you'll have a feel for what you want to work with.

If you have patience, and can find the 3060ti at a decent price, you could do a much better computer though. This below does just barely go over budget if you want to build your own and are impatient, and fine paying inflated prices on a 3060 ti on eBay. Unfortunately, they're supposed to be around $500 or so, but don't go for anywhere near that.
