Question trying to find out what to buy

hi everyone, im trying to find someone reliable to guide me in what to get for my computer. i am looking for parts to a good graphic design/ animation computer but i dont know how compatibility works with the parts. i have made up my mind on getting a thermaltake case for the computer, so it would have to fit in that. http://www.thermaltake.com/xaserCase/Damier/v5000d.htm *here is the chassis*


(dont worry, i know how to actually make the computer once i have the parts)

I think that if you hang on for a bit there will be someone around to kind of help you through the parts. But you do need to supply them with a little more info
Like price range and your preferences to type of hardware software.
that sort of thing.

i am very much willing to spend anywhere from $3000-$4000

and as for my preferences to hardware, i am not exactly sure lol

i guess people could give me suggestions as to what they have found reliable in the past and aid me in finding good parts
