First full build here, would really appreciate opinions on the parts list below. As in the title, the purpose of this PC would be mainly 3D design but I'd also be browsing and probably some lite gaming. I will probably also experiment with some mild OCing as well, just because. My main concern is the MOBO, not sure if it's the best choice. Thanks in advance.

The list looks good to me. I would consider getting a new Quadro K620 instead of the Quadro 2000D. You can find a 2000D for $250-$300 on eBay whereas a K620 is around $160 from various etailers. And it is a Maxwell based GPU despite its "K" naming, which places it two generations ahead of the 2000D while having similar or higher specifications.

As for the board, I might change it to: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-ga78lmtusb3

Thanks for the input, the only reason I'm using the 2000D is I already have it, I was able to salvage it from a work PC before it hit the dumpster. I'll probably upgrade in the future though.
