I need some advice on parts for a build I'll be using mainly for programming and data analysis. I would also like to be able to use Adobe Creative Suite and Blender (and possibly Maya, SolidWorks, AutoCAD) without any issues. Basic video editing capabilities would be a bonus. I'm not going to be using this PC for high end gaming, but might like to play some less graphically demanding indie-type games in the future.
In terms of hardware, SSD and high capacity HDD (at least 4TB) are essential. I was thinking of 32GB RAM but I'll add more if needed. I'd like to have two 24" HD monitors with one that can be turned to portrait orientation. I have a keyboard and mouse already.
I really want to future-proof this build as much as I can, so I would like to be able to use it for the next five or so years (for the activities described above) without worrying too much about upgrading if possible.
My budget is £2000 / $2800.
I'm new to this so any help is very much appreciated!
