    Thank you for taking the time to help me choose different specs. Although I am gonna stick with the dell monitor for design purpose. And as for SSD, I think I will stick with normal hard disks.

    Other then that, I am going to consider the other parts since they're more cheaper. But I am not to sure about the OS.

    All in all thank you for helping me out! I really appreciate it :)
