Hello everyone, I built my first PC about 4-5 years ago and I'm ready for an upgrade. I'll mainly be working in Solidworks doing 3D CAD drawing / rendering as well as simulations in Solidworks. I'll also be playing Rocket League on a 144hz monitor.

Here is my current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/GiraffeMan/saved/#view=2T3Mpg

Here is what I've come up with as an upgrade thus far (I've marked the items I already own): https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PPpXbK

This was put together with help from people in the r/buildapc Discord. I'm posting to various forums to build the confidence I need to pull the trigger on ordering $1,800 worth of computer parts... Lol.

If you have any modifications you'd suggest, I'd greatly appreciate your input. If you'd like to simply help boost my confidence by supporting this list, then by all means, please do :)

So after some discussion and continued research I think I'm set: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fzHdDq

Going with the Quadro RTX 4000 workstation card as I've learned that some features in Solidworks are disabled if running on a gaming card, and also support is not offered to users who aren't running on a certified workstation card. Also, benchmarks show that the Quadro RTX 4000 will improve my gaming experience over my current build, and I'm already happy with my gaming experience as it is... So I think I'm making the right choice here.
