Okay everyone, I'm seeking to build my very own desktop. I have a friend in IT that is willing to help me however, I wanted to get more advice.

After searching around for different desktops I was looking at something like alienware, but they're prices are rediculous. I figured I could build my own for a more reasonable price.

I will be using this for VR Gaming as well as the entire Adobe Suit. I want to build it so I have a fast, smooth computer that doesn't lag.

I have been looking into the Intel i7 processors as well as the Nvidia graphics card. I have also researched AMD, as they just released CPU cards and Graphics cards for a more attractive price. I'm just not sure how they size up against Intel and Nvidia.

I am also looking for 1T of memory and 32GB of Ram.

I just don't know which types to get as they're are different types of graphics cards and i7 processors.

Let me know if you can help in my decision-making on trying to build something great for both Adobe purposes and VR gaming.

Thank you!
