This is my first venture into the world of PC building and I'd super appreciate any wisdom shared!
My main uses would be for casual gaming and a spectrum of engineering CAD software. While I'm not aiming for the most cutting edge 4K stuff I do want a slightly future proof build that will last for a while.
Goal (less than or right at $1000) https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JyTZdX
Advice on GPU and Mobo selection would really be appreciated. This is where I'm the most uncertain. Should I select cheaper options to reduce the price or are the better components worth the investment? I'm also considering going with a 250 GB SSD to save money since most of my friends who casually game are never filling up their 500 GB SSDs. Thought on that?
Last random note: What monitor do you like and why?
Thanks so much for the help!
