    Hello! I'm looking into creating a new home workstation for my motion graphics needs. Right now I am working on a 2 year old Macbook Pro, and I am ready to move on. I also have a 5 year old build that I don't even touch, I might use the case from the old build on this new one.

    My budget goal is $1500, and can go over or under a bit.

    I know I need a good cpu because c4d doesn't render with a graphics card, otherwise I'm sort of in the dark because I haven't kept up with new computer tech.

    Appreciate the advice!

    This can be a good start for setting a base line. As far as pro hardware i can't provide any links, hope some other guys with expirience will jump over here.

    Oh, and if anyone has some good advice on monitors, preferably matching 24" I would appreciate it. Not included in the budget that I am setting.
