New to PC Building, Basic Workstation rig list

So I'm new to building a PC even though I have a custom built one through cyberpower (xmas gift, I don't have the spec sheet)

Basically I'm looking to build a decent workstation rig, I'm a college student who recently switched majors to digital art and design.

My budget: as cheap as possible, room to upgrade in the future.

Looking to do a mini ITX build

Windows 10

will be running basic programs like office and some heavier like blender and photoshop.

I'm not too interested in gaming capabillities since thats what I use my PC for now, looking for a strictly work computer.
