New build advice under 550 home office ACAD

Hello all,

First time build and I am looking for feedback for a home office build. I will not do gaming but will run ACAD as well as the normal stuff (Office, Adobe Professional). If it matters, I typically run multiple applications (at least three or four at once) when I work and don't want it to bog down. Need dual monitor support as I already own two newer 22" Acer monitors that I will bring over.

Looking to keep price within 500 to 550 range

Any advice would help!

This should do it.
