Hi everyone, Im hoping this is the proper place to post this. Im planning on having a computer built for maya 2017, I already know how to animate, Im just shit when it comes to technical know-how, so I was hoping someone who actually knows what they are doing tell me if these parts would play well with maya.

System Core
Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-I
CPU: Intel Core i7 9700K 3.6GHz Eight Core 12MB 95W
Ram: Crucial 32GB DDR4-2666 (2x16GB)
Video Card: PNY Quadro P4000 PCI-E 8GB
Sound Card: Onboard Sound
Networking: Integrated WiFi+Bluetooth
Hard Drive: Samsung 860 Pro 1TB SATA3 2.5inch SSD
Primary drive.

Western Digital Red 8TB SATA3
Secondary drive.

Case / Cooling: Maybe something small not sure
Case: Small Case
Power Supply: Corsair SF600 600W SFX Power Supply
CPU Cooling: Silverstone AR11 Low Profile CPU Cooler
Additional Cooling: Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Compound Upgrade
Case Fans Upgrade Kit for Echo Pro (120mm + magnetic filters)
star Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
spacer Kingston USB 3.0 High-Speed Media Reader

Is there something I might be missing or would be great to have?
One bump before giving up.
Anon, this build will just crunch anything that you throw at it
Thanks! I took it from the puget systems, Sadly they dont sell them abroad, just wanted to hear your opinions on it. THANKS!
get a 1080 instead of quadro
You will need more then 32Gb of ram.
Would the 1080 help? I went for a quadro because Im hoping it will run my shots in real time when playing them in the viewport, it is exhausting animating something and waiting for the playblast to be done.
i don't really know, i just recommend it because of cuda cores. there is also nvidia real time ray trace which is in the new nvidia RTX card

Ill need to check what are cuda cores, this is mainly a machine for animating in maya, so ill need to check out how these cores will help with animation if they do. Thanks!
You don't need to buy a Red WD drive, those are for constant spin access like on a server. Get a blue or black (black being the fancy option)

Strix board is a waste if you aren't going to over lock.

A 600w power supply ain't pushing that mobo with that Cpu and a quadro.

Honestly this whole build seems like you just clicked the most expensive shit on Newegg without thinking about your actual needs, minus that low tier power supply.

Last note, you don't want a small case or a low profile cooler on a beefy cpu like that.
If you're going to render on this machine you may be better off with a threadripper or ryzen 2xxx depending on your engine, look up benchmarks.
