Hi everyone.

It's been a long time since I built a computer and I'm looking for

This will be mostly an office machine but also will be used for autocad.
No games. So needs ability to render 3D at low frame rates.

Might want to compile a few kernels.

I will not be storing much data on it for now but might add some cheap
storage hard drives later.

I already have a mid tower ATX case that I would like to re-use and a
good Thermaltake 450W power supply.

What do you suggest in terms of mainboard, CPU, graphics card?

Regarding storage, is NVME a thing on desktop mainboards now? I have a
couple spare M.2 80mm form factor NVME drives.
