Hi, I'm looking to build a PC for Adobe Creative Cloud and light gaming. The games I'm going to play are GTA V, BeamNG.drive, Minecraft, and a few more. My budget is $1000 AUD (Australian Dollars) and I prefer an Intel/NVIDIA but an AMD build would be fine as well. Plus I like an SSD and HDD for the storage and an optical drive because I have some games and software on CD that I need. Also, I need WI-FI (Either a motherboard with built-in WI-FI or a PCI-E WI-FI card.) Thanks for reading.
 
This is a difficult time to do a build. Video cards are going for three times their normal price atm due to the extreme chip shortage + mining craze. About the only way to obtain a decent video card these days is off of Ebay and they don't run cheap.

This build gives you a rough idea of what you're looking at. You can add a storage drive later on.
