2nd opinion on casual build

Hey Guys

 

Haven't made a build in years so looking for help to assemble a build for a friend. He needs to make¬†3D plans in Sketchup and Revit for a recently started course¬†and his laptop is not cutting it. After all these years, he would like to have a desktop again so he can work on his projects¬†during the course and maybe for his future job. He wouldn't mind it if it could play some games, he's totally not a hardcore gamer but he likes to game¬†once in a while. The most important thing is that it's a decent rig and he won't have to upgrade in the next couple of years to play a game in medium settings. His budget is about ‚ā¨900-1000 for the system.

 

I first made this assembly (prices are in Euro and from the website www.megekko.nl which has the best prices in the area):

‚ā¨38.55
 
 
 
 
‚ā¨235.00
 
‚ā¨87.00
 
‚ā¨70.04
 
‚ā¨ 1091,49 (bit too high)

 

 
I already asked for some advice and they gave me this:
 
 
Spoiler


 
‚ā¨165.00
 
 
 
‚ā¨89.00
 
 
‚ā¨83.95
 
‚ā¨ 922,84 (Price in the sweet spot but I have bad experience with AMD and kind of¬†prefer Intel :s )

 

 
So do you guys have a second opinion for me how it could improve or what I should go for?

The second build is definitely better, not sure about the Vega 56 and mobo though. I think getting a 1070/1070ti is a better idea than a vega 56.

second build is much better, but don't get that power supply. Get something tier C or higher

The 1070ti is a ‚ā¨100 more expensive, it even just went up and is now ‚ā¨140 more expensive than the Vega 56. Is it really worth the extra cash for my friends needs?

 

Is the Corsair RM650x a good alternative for PSU?
