i should mention even budget boards are capable of running the top of the line CPUs/GPUs even overclock them (although i wouldn't recommend it)

^ just ignore 4k unless your spending around 1,500 dollars on the PC alone, not considering the 500-600 dollar monitor fee

(and people wonder why it hasn't been adopted faster)

i could recommend something like this,

only thing i would say is that i really don't know enough about workstation GPUs to give you an good recommendation in that regard, so i would recommend doing some research on what would be best for your use.

It would most likely be better then an RX 580 for cad but i'm not sure if it would be within your budget

i mean what he recommended above would be good if you game on the side, (i do have quality concerns about the 660p) if not then i would look to get something with a dedicated workstation GPU (although that would severely limit your gaming options in the future, the architecture is completely different and not at all game optimized)

another thing i should note is that people will usually go to the max of your budget, mostly because you can always upgrade to better parts, that doesn't mean the cheaper option is bad, i feel like a RX580 would be fine for a build like yours

i'm told that the fractal G is a pretty decent case for a budget/office set up, comes with 2 fans and has the ability to have CD drives which could help depending on how up to date the office is

i would also like to ask if this build will be used for gaming on the side, or purely for CAD because if so then a work station GPU would be better

you can probly use a 2200g but i don't know if you would be capable of powering 2 monitors with it D: (if not just add a cheap last gen GPU like a GTX 660 or something like that)

less exhaust then intake, or else temperatures will actually be hotter then normal, your motherboard should be able to handle 2 fans on one connector, it just increases the amps which causes more heat (but probly nothing noticeable) but then again you motherboard might not support higher amps on the connector

a splitter literally is just a 4 pin connector that extends out to 2 4 pin connectors, the fans will will run at the same speed (at least that's what i believe it will be, PSU cable splitters are different)

i mean depending on what you have on your PC i'm told that 2 fans in the front and one in the back is the best, (more gives diminishing cooling improvements)

honestly get a hard drive so you don't have to worry about space, Western digital blue SSD M.2 is just a normal SSD built to fit an M.2 slot so you don't even get that speed benefit

I mean anything 750w would be plenty, I don't enough enough about PSUs to give you a great recommendation

, all I can say is that in the past 2 years nothing much has changed for PSUs (at least for any that are below 1000W and aren't platinum rated)

i should say that the PSU is a little expensive just so you get it in a white color, and considering most cases have a shroud covering the PSU, pointless

i've seen a 450 dollar build with a 2200g and a RX 570, which would be significantly better, i've also been told that the 2200g is better for value

(i will say that the 2400g's graphics are like my Laptops GPU so i can tell you that without thermal throttling you should be able to play most games on low/very low with 60-ish frames, (you will have to go to 720p for more demanding games)

get a B450 motherboard, you can't run a 2600 on an old series motherboard,

and check if there is a compatible CPU cooler (although the 2600x's stock cooler is good enough)

also try and get 3000 Hz ram works better with ryzen
