Re: 3D rendering and high end gaming computer
On that budget you can't really get a 'high-end' computer. The OS is 100, the cpu is 300, the gfx card is at least 300, the mobo is at least 150, the hdd and optical drive will be 150.
That's your budget used up already, and you still need a psu, ram, case, monitor, keyboard and mouse, and speakers.
