Ok many of you may know I am going to school for game design with a heavy influence on programming, and I need a new computer. Now the school provides badass dell workstation laptops that can easily handle all the programs we could throw at it. But I need a desktop that I can come home to and use it to easily edit on. I need to run programs such as 3DS max, Maya, blender, mudbox and many more. I won't be doing any gaming on it. My budget is somewhere around $1000, and I will probably be buying parts at a time. TL;DR Need a NON-Gaming computer that can run 3DS Max, CAD, Maya, Blender, Mudbox, Unreal 3 (yes we get a license for U3 for the school) and Torque, Budget is around $1000.
