$2000 gaming, 3d modeling, and maybe streaming pc (idk what I'm doing please help)

Budget: $2,000 US

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming and 3d modeling/rendering

Other details: Decent 100% keyboard (with RGB), two 1440p Monitors and monitor arms if budget allows

 

I mainly want to do gaming (mainly Minecraft, modded, with shaders if i can) and 3d modeling (blender) and maybe streaming. My budget it $2,000. I no have living clue what I’m doing but anything is better than what I have right now. Any kind of help would be GREATLY appreciated. I have a microcenter somewhat close to where I live so can go there. being able to buy the parts in one go would be nice but i don't mind buying from different sources. (I understand that part costs rotate regularly. Even though I’m not quite ready to buy yet, I still want to be somewhat knowledgeable when I do. So I might repost this again at some point when I’m fully ready).

Also, would buying the individual parts to a prebuild I find and building it myself work in my favor? I like the sound of that idea but idk if it would turn out well. And I'm chill to go over budget by about 250 to 300 for the peripherals. I'm just aiming for the main 2,000 to be allocated to the pc itself.

This is the parts list I played with from a YouTube video. I also got two recommendations from PCPP. what can I upgrade in these two lists to get to were i want to be? Parts list 1, Parts list 2

why not AMD here?

 

I know Intel has more cores and is maybe slightly cheaper, but it's also hotter on all-core requiring more cooling possibly more than what you have,

 

besides that, if 3D modelling is just Blender, all the work almost can be done with GPU, more specifically Nvidia GPU,

 

leaving 2 choices of cheaper 4070 Ti Super and more expensive 4080 Super, both leaving different amounts of remaining budget of course,

 

my list has 4080 Super: (and AMD CPU)

Because the i7-13700K / KF runs circles around the 7800x3D in rendering.

I guess,

but let's remember Blender can use GPU to accelerate renders far more efficiently than it can use CPU cores,

 

for example with RTX 3060 you'd render a scene in like 14 seconds you would render same scene with RTX 4070 Ti in like 8 seconds,

 

0:38-1:15 and 4:30: (4060 Ti vs 4070)
