This should do a good job for your budget, doesn't include an operating system fyi. If you want you could add an SSD and downgrade something if you want faster loading speeds, but you could just add one later. If the GPU is overkill for what you're doing, feel free to switch it out. I'm not sure exactly how much GPU intensive stuff you'll be doing.
