My current computer is $1200, and can't handle the stuff I do anymore (film visual effects)
I have two monitors and an 21ux Cintiq tablet that my computer can't really handle anymore.

32GB of RAM is just an absurd amount honestly. If I were you I would bump down to 16GB or even 8GB and try to spend that money on a slightly better graphics card.

I did not get it from CyberpowerPC. I'm just saying the specs are kind of like mine.
I built my own, it cost about 1000 in total. I think building is always cheaper then buying one that is already set-up, but the problem is not everyone knows hot to build one.

Really? Have you tried the parts from NewEgg.com? They are pretty reputable and are cheap.
I didn't only order it from online though, I went to a nearby computer parts store and looked for sales.
You should try looking around, it gets cheaper I promise.

Ah well I meant for PCs that are built for you.

I could probably put one together but I'm too paranoid I'll fuck it up

just go through walk through tutorials on it and watch it again when you're making it.

Good for what you're paying for it, I'd say, if that's in dollars. I would have looked for an Intel processor, though. They're proven to be generally more reliable. But AMD's decent enough.
