Much better multitask build. More a build for video editing or game while streaming but will do everything well. Don't know exactly what you need for programing. This one i suspect a bit overkill

Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay. This helped a lot. I borrowed a bunch from your intel list.

Thanks for the suggestions. The storage and GPU are great. I ultimately ended up going for intel.
