Hi guys,

First build here, wondering if these parts are sufficient for daily use/maybe gaming unsure yet with potential of some engineering software to be used. Already purchased the CPU and MB, any recommendations are massively appreciated!

Go for a higher PSU for future proofing just in case you have plans to upgrade GPUs, etc. For your CPU, it would be sufficient to run AutoCAD, 3DS Max, Sketchup, Revit, etc. on a simple project like houses. That CPU would really be insufficient if you have plans for rendering and complicated 3D modelling.
