What design software, which games do you plan on playing, and will need a more solid budget. Outrageous in price to some people can be 2 grand or 500 bucks if you can see where I'm coming from.

If you are willing to wiggle a bit from that we can get better. I skimped on a few things to make sure you had that i5 for the production software. So in that case the GPU lacks a bit but will still play the games you want.

I would add another 10 bucks for the PSU to get a Seasonic then if possible the next best option for a video card.

There ya go. That'll give you a solid rig. Your next upgrade should be an SSD.
