I am rebuilding my PC since it died.

Hello everyone. When I tried to transfer my old motherboard to a new case, and I think I screwed up with the stand offs and shorted out the motherboard.

There's no point in rebuilding an FM2 socket motherboard, so I figured I'll slowly build up this PC.

I already have a case and PSU. And I just ordered the Motherboard and CPU.

I play a lot of games, Space Engineers, XCOM 2, Witcher 3, Heavily modded fallout 4 and Skyrim.

I heavily use Autodesks Maya, Inventor, and Mudbox.

Thanks for you advice and opinions everone. Keep in mind I am going for aesthetics and performance with a Black and Red theme. And no, I won't be returning any purchased parts.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Type Item Price
CPU Basically an I3-6100 but I chose this because I won't have a GPU for a little bit. I will rely on the powerful HD 630 graphics for now until I get a GPU. Intel - Pentium G4600 3.6GHz Dual-Core Processor
CPU Cooler I don't need it, and the Pentium doesn't run hot, but I chose this for a few reasons: It looks very nice, it's black, so it fits the colour scheme, and it's very quiet. be quiet! - Dark Rock 2 57.9 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard I love the look of this motherboard so much, and I am a fan of MSI boards. I wanted something quality, so I went ahead and bought this. MSI - B250M MORTAR Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory I haven't bought the kit yet. I want 2400Mhz RAM and 16gb and have it black. I think this is fitting Kingston - HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
Storage I will be transferring a lot of large files, so the EVO makes sense. Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage I already own this Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Storage Pricier, but I am getting this for the warranty. Western Digital - BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card I need an 8gb card because I will be dealing with A LOT of large textures. When I had my 2gb 750 TI, that 2gb got ate up rather quickly. Also, I do a lot of heavy gaming. Sapphire - Radeon RX 570 8GB NITRO+ Video Card
Case Already purchased. Looks great. DIYPC - Cuboid-R MicroATX Mini Tower Case
Power Supply Best PSU for the price. I know am getting close to the 450 watt mark, but that's okay. Corsair - CXM 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Case Fan Rear of the case. Exhaust. Thermaltake - Riing 12 LED Red 40.6 CFM 120mm Fan

They have to be from either Newegg or Amazon. Why 3200Mhz RAM? Mobo only can support 2400Mhz.

It's grey, which I feel will stand out in the all black components with red LEDs.

Going for all Black with red LEDs.

LED fans in the case are flimsly and garbage. They don't push much air.

As for the case, it has two side windows.

I just chose low profile black RAM.

Because the Nitro looks really cool. Its simplicity is what's attractive. And what do you mean different brand that consumes less?

G4560 has HD 610 graphics. G4600 has HD 630, which is about 80-90% more powerful.

I am stuck witht the PSU, and PCPP overestimates wattage requirements, so I'll be fine.

For the HD 630 http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-HD-630-Desktop-Kaby-Lake-vs-Intel--HD-610-Desktop-Kaby-Lake/m178724vsm225196 I went off if that. How will it perform in Autocad?

IGPUs also benefit from faster RAM.

What other GPUs like that only require a 185 watt TDP, that's an 8gb card for a similar price, and is black?

Well, because my Internet is shoddy rn and I can't look. Only comment xP

But honestly, I just love the look of the Nitro. Might stick with it.

How well does the Pentium G4600 do in AutoCAD programs like Inventor, Maya, and Mudbox?

Maybe. I prefer to have the warranty there than not. Something could happen.

I tried looking for an RX 580 8gb but the price was a little too steep for me. Besides, an RX 570 will more than exceed my needs for gaming. I just need the 8gb of VRAM.
