Mainly, yes. That said, I do use Fusion 360 which is a CAD program and I would presume be CPU / RAM heavy. I would like at vids at a point but my wife's iMac is probably better suited anyways. Thanks for the advice on the storage, that is what I was looking for. I saw the 256G one but its like 90% of the price and similar speed to the 512GB one, but didnt see the 960 EVO. Expensive board, no, I would like something that works, is reliable (ive had bad issues with Asus before and stopped buying their stuff, but these boards get good reviews). So happy to look at alternatives. 550W only? I suppose today's systems are more effecient. Seems like less about clock speed and more about efficiency with today's CPUs?
