Looking to build a new PC. Mostly do autocad modeling and some gaming.

would you salvage any of the items below into the new build?

Is cyber Monday still worth waiting for deal wise?

Sapphire RX Vega 64 8gb GPU
Rosewill Hive 750w modular PSU
Coolermaster hyper 212 processor cooler
G. Skill RIPJAW RAM, 8gb X 4 (total 32)
Intel core i7 8700 3.7ghz
Three SSD drives

motherboard is an asrock but it’s gotta go for a wifi motherboard replacement at a minimum.

razor mouse, keyboard, speakers. All reusable obviously there.

SSDs are Kingston 480gb.
RAM is G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15D-16GVR

im in the US.
Budget is probably $1500-2000 but I’d of course prefer to spend less.

You could and probably should reuse the SSDs.

Keep the RAM if it is compatible with any new motherboard. That may remain unknown until you actually try to re-use it.

The cooler may be adequate...depending on what CPU you next use. It's a bit above average, but not top line.

You'll need a new motherboard to do much upgrading on that CPU.

Don't know about the video card.

PSU...not sure of it's reputation when it was new. It may be 5 years old? Maybe upgrade it due to age if nothing else, but it wouldn't be the first thing on my list of things to replace.

Case?? Could be OK for reuse if air flow is at least average and you like it.
