Looking to build a PC for in and around the £2000 pound mark, was looking at something along these lines but would appreciate a second opinion.

Would also need a new monitor as my current one is 1080p.

Cheers!

What is your budget and currency?
£2000
What will you use the PC for?
Gaming and light use of CAD
Do you need a monitor?
Yep
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, or other peripherals?
Nope
Do you need an operating system?
Nope
Will you overclock?
Most likely not
Anything else we should know?
Budget is not strictly £2000, so if it goes over/under for a worthwhile upgrade it's fine

In all seriousness, that is a sweet build. I'll leave it to the experts to give you a more concrete answer.

This is my build and it has gave me 0 problems and the temps are always low.

Alternative monitors;
Pixio PX329
MSI Optix MAG271CQR

Add whatever capacity 7200RPM HDD you want/need.

Drop the 3900x to an R7 3800x if you want to save £100.

If you want a cheaper X570 motherboard, get the Asus TUF X570. Or, the MSI X570 Tomahawk if you can get one for under 200 quid.
If you're getting a B450 mobo, don't get the Strix, just get a B450 Tomahawk MAX and call it a day.

Don't pay 140 quid for an NZXT H510. Lian-Li PC-O11 + 3 fans is the same price, which is a far better quality case with far better airflow.
Otherwise, I'd get a Cooler Master NR600 or Phanteks P400A for <£80.
