Need Help Choosing Parts for CAD Workstation

Hello, I am new to the PC building community and could really use some help. I am looking to build a PC for running SolidWorks 2020 for smaller assemblies (less than 500 parts) and eventually some 3D printing. I am not familiar enough with PC components to be comfortable choosing parts with no guidance, I've put together a list of some components I have seen in other builds, but I am not sure whether or not they would meet my needs. I would like to stay under $1000 but could go above if beneficial in the long run. If anyone could help selecting components I would greatly appreciate it! Please also let me know if I should totally scrap this list and start over, I am open to anything! :)
