  1. Hello, I am looking to start my first custom build and would like to make sure what I've chosen for hardware is compatible. I would also like any suggestions on hardware changes that might give me more bang for my buck. I am an architecture student going into graduate school and I'm looking to build a 3d workstation for a budget of $2000. I need to run programs such as Adobe Suite, Autodesk Softwares, Rhino 3d, Grasshopper, etc. I have researched and put together the following build based on suggestion and information on cpcr.
