I'd build one for  less than $1000 and use the other $3000 on something worth while.

 

However, in your fictional tale, I'd toss out the HDDs and go with SSDs only. Don't need many TBs of storage, but fast-durable storage is better.
Toss out the Bluray drive and not replace with nothing. At this point I think media drives on a PC are worthless.
Toss out the audio card. MOBO audio is good enough.



I spend half that and then use the rest for games, games, games. Still. it would be an impressive build. And you even got a $5.00 discount!



 

 

 

 

4000 Pesos? I can't even buy a Wii U with that shit.

Nice computer but mine is still more than good enough and it only cost Ł550. I think i would use the 4 grand on a nice long holiday or a car thanks

PSP, PS3, Vita, 3DS, Wii U and PS4.

I barely understand anything about PC's but I would get a machine that runs a 120 fps a 4K monitor and a CPU that runs at 3 billion teraflops.



"I've Underestimated the Horse Power from Mario Kart 8, I'll Never Doubt the WiiU's Engine Again"

I'd buy a Mac Pro. And then not play games on it.

"Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence." - C.S. Lewis

"Anyone who tries to use the word "fanboy" as a legitimate descriptive term in any intelligent conversation needs to go back to grade school. Immature no-brain bullshit like that is why normal people look at video game players and only see acne-ridden dweebs with severe social issues." - Myself

600 in main memory??? too much...
256 ssd??? not enough...

3 GPUs? not worth unless you have 3 or more screens...
