Unhappy Help first time building a computer

Hello, I'm planning to build a pc basically for gamind and Graphic designing.
I'm a 18 year old man who is going to study product design, I'm not really sure which programs I'm going to use, and I'm kinda heavy gamer, I play never winter, wow, perfect world, maple story... I know they aren't really heavy graphic wise games but I'd like to not have any trouble with my gaming or my designing any limitation, my budget is about 2,000 dollars (If you can find it in Mexican pesos that'd be grat) I plan to spend the whole budget, please help me what should I get and if there's a guide on how to build it that would be really great.
Ty in advance for your help and I really apologise for my bad english but I'm mexican please forgive me

Is this something you're saving for, or do you have your budget now?

Well we need to establish a solid base of usage. Your games don't really require an expensive graphics card....at all really. Graphics design, that's another story. It really depends heavily on what software you use what the best card is to recommend. I recommend building a solid base for a PC now with a run of the mill card that can easily handle the games you listed while you save your cash for a better card when you fully know what software you will be using.

It also helps to know what sites will ship to Mexico so I can link parts for you.

The school you're planning on attending should have requirements as to what programs you'll be using. If they don't have them listed, then you should be able to contact the Graphic Design department and ask what will be used in courses.

Most likely the Adobe suite (PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.).

As for actually building the PC... it's very easy. I always tell people, if you can put together a simple puzzle, you can put together a PC. Everything fits in 1 way, and there's tons of videos/guides all over.

Yes, we can help with that. I'm sure that's what PP is doing at this moment (piecing together you a build, as he's are "resident expert" at builds for people).

We can link you to videos that fully show you how to build a PC and I'm here to help you with the parts. Just need more of a direction.

Also, need a website that will ship to Mexico so we can link you parts you can actually order.

To anybody else who wants to help I'll be gone most of the day without net. I'm thinking:
4930k
ASRock Extreme6 X79
Corsair AX650
16-32GB of RAM
Whatever case
? GPU right now.
SSD+HDD combo (EVO)
