Hello Guys

I wan to build a PC for a Commercial artist student, who mainly uses, Corel Draw, Photoshop, Intuos. After Effect, Illlustrater, Primer softwoare for creating concept arts, animation and video editing, the boy is studing in commercial arts.

His current config is

Intel Pentium E2140 with OEM p35/g33/g31 motherboard
4 GB DDR 2 RAM
Intel g33/g31 onboard graphic
20inch LCD monitor

now please give me two option one, if he want to upgrade the system with graphic card

and one with new Build which can help him in his work, i am more inclined to new system, so you can exclude monitor,

1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans: Corel Draw, Photoshop, After Effects, Premier, Illustrater, etc mainly for creating concept arts, etc, he also uses Intuous drawing hardware

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans: around 30-40 thousand

Ans: not at all

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: Windows 10

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: may be 1 TB

6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention which screen size and resolution do you want. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, again mention the size and resolution of monitor you have.
Ans: if possible in budget, other else keep curent one

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans:, all want to buy a complete system, may be exclude monitor and keyboard an dmouse

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans: Mumbai

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans: yes, many

10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally?

he has a monitor, cabinet and keyboard mouse as of now, even he can use this current hard disk,

can you guy suggest

Processor
Motherboard
Ram
Graphic card
Powersupply


i am thinking of i3, 4 or 8 gb ram and a good graphic card and a decent power supply

he is using the current system and making good use of it, so not going for too much high end, right now, since he is a student

please suggest around 25 to 30 k

later he can upgrade monitor if he wish so,

thanks

I think price will unnecessarily inflate in such case. May be you can take Ryzen 3 1200 and add GT1030 but that GPU costs like 6K making CPU and GPU combo cost about 12K.
