I'm working on a new build and I'm not very computer literate, just brave, lol. From a build I accidentally got right about ten years ago, I learned the right mobo/cpu/ram/vid combination can create an exceptionally well performing machine. I am working within a budget of about $500 for the mobo/cpu/ram/vid but the cheaper, the better, or if somethign exceptional costs a little more, I can do that. I need three of these for work related use. The work is CAD files, PDF's, drawings for construction related work. We build high schools, elementary schools, churches, etc.. and these machines need to be capable of 3D and multiple layer CAD design builds. Here's what I have so far:
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Model #:P8Z77-V LK
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K

Any comments or suggestion is greatly appreciated.
