Build Me A Graphic Design/ Gaming Computer

Hi there, I am trying to get an idea of what I'll be spending for a pretty good graphic design/ gaming computer. Primary focus being graphic design.

MAX budget is $750, if possible I'd like to see various price points... Such as $550, $650, $750.
I should be able to get a copy of Windows 10 from my school for free so that doesn't need to be included, nor does a monitor, mouse or keyboard. A flashy case is not necessary.

Thank you all for your assistance!

  1. With the price of GPU's right now, it's much cheaper to buy pre-built systems.

    With that price range it's going to be hard enough to build a decent gaming computer, let alone one that also will be used for graphic design.
  2. Best answer
    yes with GPU prices things are messed up. If you still want to build a PC instead buy a prebuilt you'll have to settle for the GTX 1050 1050 Ti. Another bigger problem for you is RAM prices which are also very high right now. If you're really serious about graphics work then you'll be eating up RAM. You might be able to get some saving from bundle deals or if you happen to live near a microcenter than that will be your best deal possible.
