Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: Within November '13

Budget Range: Rough total of $1000 - ~$1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D Design and Engineering applications. Engineering stress and physics simulations and design. Autodesk Inventor, Solidworks(http://www.solidworks.com/), Maya, Cinema 4D, and Autocad. Gaming, watching movies.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes(Could be separate from the computer system price range.)



Parts to Upgrade: (e.g.: CPU, mobo, RAM) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using**

Do you need to buy OS: Yes, I will, Windows 8

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any website that is reputable, newegg.com, tigerdirect, etc...

Location: Homeland, CA

Parts Preferences: CPU: Intel, GPU: nVidia or any other brand that is good.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Not sure.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1200 at the very least

Additional Comments: I'm new to the building my own computer any recommendations and pointers would be appreciated.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Currently having some trouble running Solidworks with complex assemblies and 3d object designs.

Part I have chosen so far(Feel free to supply me a completely different list of a computer build, or help me with the missing parts I will need, Again I'm a new at this so if I can get confirmation that the follow parts work together would be nice) :

Motherboard
Asus P9X79_LE

Thanks for your reply, I'll will consider the parts you've chosen. What would you say this build is best for and what task would it not be able to handle well?
