Looking to build a desktop but....

Hello, first time poster, long time lurker, etc, etc. I've been wanting to start getting into modeling and painting with Maya and Photoshop, but my old laptop just doesn't cut it. I can run Photoshop without too many layers, but Maya crashes on me a lot or I get a lot of clipping when I set up image planes. I've been watching some Gnomon tutorials, but it's frustrating cause I can't follow along. I'd like to buy or build a desktop, but I don't really know anything about computer specs or what I need for modeling. I'm looking to start saving up some money and hopefully get it by June or so. Somewhere in the 2-3 thousand range.
