Building a new PC, please help :)

hello guys,
My name is baraa, and i am Landscape Architecture student and am looking to build a new pc.
so i would like to take some input from someone more qualified than me.

anyway this is the build i am looking to put together

http://pcpartpicker.com/user/al-baraa/saved/#savedbuild_676297

I will mostly use the pc for design, rendering project and multitasking
so if anyone could suggest similar parts for lower prices or if something is out of place, and i don't know what kind of power supply i should use.

Thanks :)

  1. Alright, first off: Cool job :D
    Now, a few questions and things to mention:
    1) You haven't included a monitor, PSU or optical drive*
    2) Do you have ANY desire to game on this
    3) Would you like a bigger and clearer (resolution-wise) monitor*
    4) What's your maximum budget?

    * I can recommend just about any monitor from trusted brands like Asus, AOC, BenQ, etc.
    If you'd like a 27" 1440p monitor, I can vouch for several Southern Korean monitors available from Ebay.
    I can also vouch for any PSU from Corsair, (particularly for your build either a Corsair CX500 or CX500M.
    Any optical drive will do, and you may find that you need one further in the future. Also, they're super cheap.

    Awaiting your response,
    Phaydze :)

    For the monitor i already have one :), and for the PSU i don't really know what to chose :), and for the optical drive i will buy it later :)


    2) Do you have ANY desire to game on this

    Not really, i usually play in ps or xbox :)


    3) Would you like a bigger and clearer (resolution-wise) monitor*
    4) What's your maximum budget?

    1500 $ :)

    Absolutely no problem. Okay, if your budget is $1500, I'd recommend buying the Corsair CX500M PSU, and I'd actually recommend buying a water cooler for your CPU, something like the Corsair H80i or H100i. It'll allow you to put more performance out of your CPU, which you'll want if you render. As for multitasking, you picked a good amount of RAM by a good company. Good choice of SSD and Hard Drive, and you might want to purchase those during a Black Friday sale (in the US) if you plan to buy your PC soon, as SSDs and Hard Drives are likely to be heavily discounted.
    Any more questions? :D
