I think he just wants other options plus people stopped posting in the other thread. Things I would change: 2x8gb is cheaper and less stress on the imc. I'd never buy a lower quality psu especially not on a workstation. 160gb hdd doesn't make sense. It will fill way too quickly for a workstation plus it's a bad price/gb.

Why do you need an intel CPU sorry??
A Ryzen chip would far outperform it in terms of CAD work!

The software is actually mostly single threaded processes. Only while rendering will it take advantage of ryzen. But you can find gpu renderers which will be 10x faster so would not have any issues with render times. Unless I am behind on news, autodesk still doesn't have gpu renderers built in any of their software except max. Solidworks does.
