panos_metal21 is on a distinguished road

i am into buying a new pc or workstation where i will run ansys 18 for modelling of heat and mass transfer models to simple geometries like tubes or furnace cavities. I know that "simple" is quite relative, but i can say that maximum cells number will be below 2 mil (attached a representative work can be found). My budget is 2000 euros (excluding screen and periphericals).
Can you please advice concerning the pc components (RAM, CPU, hard disk) properties is order for my PC to be functional and able to run similar models?

Thanks a lot.

Case: 80 (e.g. Fractal Design define C)
PSU: 95 (e.g. Seasonic focus plus platinum 550W)
CPU: 550 Intel Core-I7 7820X
Mainboard: 300 (e.g. ASRock X299 Taichi)
Cooling: 130 280mm AIO water cooler (e.g. Bequiet silent loop 280mm)

Paying your local hardware shop or an online retailer for putting it all together: 100

Storage is just an example, I don't know how much storage you need or if you need fast file-I/O for transient simulations.
