$1500 Budget | graphic and web design | PLEX server | very little gaming

I've had a laptop for the last 10 years and now it's time for a real computer now that I have the space.

I use Photoshop, Gimp, and Illustrator. The only games I play are FIFA and GTA. Might do a little video and audio editing. Would like to run a PLEX server as well. Want to dual boot between Windows and Linux and maybe run a VM or two.

I need a monitor,prefer dual monitors and would be willing to spend more than $1500 to include another. Don't need speakers, keyboard, mouse etc.

I also like the Fractal Design - Meshify C Dark TG ATX mid tower case

I am currently making a list for you, would you like your pc to have rbgs or watercooling? Also how much hard drive space do you need?
