Looking for your feedback on this desktop build

Hello Everyone, I have been a SolidWorks user for about 5 years now and am looking to build my first computer for work. I have read several discussions on computer builds and read Mr. Culp's presentation from last week. I followed his recommendations closley after searching around newegg comparing prices and features of the various components. The only change I would like to make is to use a smaller SSD and add a HDD. I had to choose a different SSD and memory than he suggested because the others are out of stock. My goal is to keep it under $1k for just the tower.  I will be using the monitor, mouse, and screen I currently have. I don't plan on doing any rendering or simulation on this machine. I don't plan on overclocking the CPU right now but maybe in the future I will look into it if I need more power.Can anyone one point out any flaws in this build or comment on any components that can be improved without raising the price much more? Also any other cables or small parts I would need?
