Any feedback on this build?

I did everything on my laptop up until now. 

https://www.asus.com/Laptops/N550JV/

 

The most demanding software I will be running will probably be Fusion360, Android Studio, Lightroom and chrome. No gaming.

 

Can I improve this within my budget of 800?

 

Edit: changed from 8GB of ram to 16GB.

Smaller capacity SSD and cheaper case to get another 8gb RAM module.

 


Edit: Okay...so you edited the parts list. Might wanna mention that so I don't look like a moron.

overall its a good build but I dont see the use in a 500gb SSD I would go for a 250gb SSD at the most the SSD should only be used for the operating system, essential programs, and maybe some games the rest of the programs would go into the HDD, also I would try to get a better graphics card like a gtx 1060 6gb because 4gb isnt alot and it would benefit you more if you had a 6gb card like a 1060 overall a good build though

OP build is decent. For the use case 500GB is a good idea.

 

A few $ could be saved with a different case and non-modular psu.

What about this?

 

 

 

I raised my max price by a bit.

 

I can get the Define S case for €61 so no need to change it. From what I have seen the corsair psu you mentioned is reviewed quite badly. People complain about it making clicking noises. Any other recommendations for PSU?

Looking good. From what I could read the people with defective PSUs got them replaced, but I'm sure the PSU  you have there will be just fine. Seasonic is a good brand.
