Looking to build my first pc in the coming month, probably waiting until black friday to purchase parts.

  • I'm located in Ontario, Canada
  • The focus of this machine will be music production/audio work, with potentially some video editing in premier, and occasional gaming (though I don't really care for crazy graphics or running the latest and greatest games on max)
  • Looking for a two monitor setup, I already have one
  • I will need to buy a keyboard as well, don't really care about anything fancy there
  • Budget I would like to have around $1500 CAD but willing to go up a bit if need be

 

Any starting point would be great as to what I should be looking for specs wise. Thanks in advance.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
