That is a very solid build. If that price pleases you, then no more worries, go with that.

But what I'm fascinated by is your Dell U3011 monitor.
(Unless, monkuar is the true Tutoriael which I highly doubt.)
dont use that hdd. better performing ones out there, which he will need when rendering. Also there are better cpu's out now.

While I think you are going with the smart move of spending less than 2k (4k is just stupid and would rather have a car), you are making some dumb buys.
Why are you getting "green" harddrive, its going to be slow, yes a lot of space but slow.

I would drop the 12gb of ram (you won't even get to use 6gb, more than needed is useless non.usage memory. Get a 6gb set for half the price and get two wd "blacks" or samsungs F3, raid-0 them.

Get a different cpu heatsink, you are spending a lot of money and you just get a basic good heatsink?

This is imo, but I would get a different case, something like 700D, since you are spending a lot of money on the computer. I would like it very simplistic with really nice parts.

And as you mentioned, you have no experience.... still, good with the build...

You sure you want to build one? Like I am positive you could manage it (ridiculously easy now), but if you have a high budget, you might want to check out Digital-Storm or something.

Anyways if you have to build it. I would start with a Corsair 700D Chassis (It looks nice and no one will think he is like a basement geek or something). Then I would either get a Cougar SX850 or a Corsair 850HX for the Power Supply. For the motherboard and CPU you have to choose between Intel Sandy Bridge 4-Core Platform or AMD Leo 6-Core Platform. AMD will Give you some extra cash for Graphics/Cooling/Ram/etc. But, AMD Leo is going to be replaced by a different platform in about 6-months or something, but the nice thing about AMD is that it will probably only cost like $300 to upgrade, whereas when sandy bridge gets pulled into the shadow of Ivy Bridge (or whatever), it will probably cost $400-800 to upgrade.

AMD Leo: CPU(Phenom II X6 1090T or 1100T). Motherboard(MSI 890FX-GD70 [Primarily because of outstanding customer service])

Sandy Bridge: Can't recommend anything sorry, but I would hold off on it, because when Ivy Bridge is released the computer you build will probably be second rate.

After you decide which platform, it's time to pick out memory, which is simple, G-Skill RipJaw 1600 DDR3 Memory 8GB 2x4GB kit. I don't really think anything is really much better than that so yeah... Anyways, After Memory I would get a Blu-ray burner, a nice keyboard, and then a mouse. Monitors are something I don't have much knowledge about so someone else can probably help you with that.

Oh, almost forgot Graphics Card. Stuff it! Grab 2 or 3 MSI ATi Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr II's and crossfire them, it will make your son happy. If you think Nvidia is a better brand, then I can only recommend a single 580, but it will leave a lot of empty slots on the motherboard.

For Hard drives pickup a Corsair Performance 3 64GB Solid State Drive (SSD) and then 3 Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM Hard Drives to Raid 0.

I would cool the CPU with a Corsair H70.


Okay so I think I got it all down. Anyways in total that will ring you about $2,300, but wait because of all the cash you saved you can buy a Dell 3011 for them monitor which is $1,300-1,500. So bam, a fully loaded computer with a Super-High-end monitor for about $3,800 (including shipping). That leaves you $200 to get a nice professional looking laser mouse and a mechanical Keyboard. Hope your son enjoys it.

If all he really cares about is the image manipulation and 3D rendering he would get more benefit with the most cores he can get within that budget, which would probably be an AMD solution. Also a multi-CPU platform would be best, but I don't know what AMD offers in that regard. Personally I think if you had a 8 core AMD machine vs. a 4 core (8 thread) Intel machine the AMD would be better for his uses.

Now if he also plays some newer games then he will have to balance the system out to be acceptable for both playing games and all the graphic processing work. In which case he would want to get some beefier graphics cards and cut back on the CPU.

Read the post directly before yours, I think that would suit both of those possible needs, gaming and Graphics processing for less than $4000 without cutting back on anything really.

Right but technically the AMD 1100T is only 6 cores while Intel are "8 cores" since they have hyperthreading.

It should be a well known fact that in any kind of rendering applications more cores are better even if they are slower when it comes to the actual frequency of the processor.

But I am not sure if he also wants the machine for playing games, in which a multi-CPU set up would be impractical, but for image manipulation and rendering it would be much better than any single CPU solution.
