How good is this build?

I'm not very knowledgeable about computers, so I was wondering how good this pc would run. Mostly using it for games like Modern warfare/ warzone and doing some photoshop. Also would like to know how it would run engineering programs such as CAD. I would like to keep it under $800 for now but i do want to keep upgrading it more once I've saved up more money so please tell me what to upgrade and what parts your recommend. Thanks.

    It's a good budget build. Depending on what kind of work you're doing in CAD you may benefit from going with Intel over AMD. I believe. As far as I'm aware CAD typically benefits from single-threaded performance so Intel technically holds a lead, but that's going to depend on your specific use case and the exact programs/plugins you're using probably. The Ryzen 5 should still handle it well either way. 

    I would switch your GPU to a GTX 1650 Super at that price, since you can have it for $160 and it's a better card, but that's the only thing I'd really change. You could also get away with a cheaper motherboard if you wish and put that extra budget into something else, like a larger SSD.
