Building a PC for Substance Painter/Zbrush

Hey I'm pretty inexperienced with building computers, I need to build one that is capable of doing some heavy substance work as well as work with a lot of divisions in Zbrush. I'm hoping it will cost less than 2000 Canadian on Black Friday. Could you help me out and suggest a build?

If you are on a budget, AMD Threadripper CPUs (in your case probably a 1800 series with 8 cores) currently offer the best value for money. That in turn determines what motherboards you can use.

I checked out the IBuyPower page - they make prebuilt Threadripper gaming PCs:

https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/AMD...7X-Configurator

For about 1,660 US Dollars you can get a prebuilt system with Threadripper 1800x 8-Core 3.6 GHz CPU + Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler + Gigabyte AX370 Motherboard + 32 GB DDR4 RAM + GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB VRAM + 1TB HDD + 350 Watt Power Supply + Tower Casing.

I've never bought a system from them so I don't know how good they are.

But if you're inexperienced with building PCs yourself, it might be worth thinking about just buying a pre-built system.

The Ryzen 1800x is not a "Threadripper" chip, it's a regular Ryzen chip. Threadrippers are the 1900x (8 cores/16 threads), 1920x (12x24) and 1950x (16/32) chips.
