I'd consider posting what kind of work you plan to do with the Computer. People are basically telling you how to build a low-end gaming computer here. If it's graphics modelling or something like that then sure get a good system, but if it's more about spreadsheets and wordprocessing then you barely even need a graphics card, especially since many motherboards have a builtin graphics processor now. So, if it's the latter option just pick a motherboard that is compatible with the devices you want and make sure it can support a faster CPU than you are getting, about twice as much ram as you want; this allows you to update the system later as needed without having to buy a new computer right away, that can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Ken, thanks for the reply. I do desktop applications with VS2015 and VS2017. Also, a very plain ecommerce website.
I am using MS Sql Server as a database.
I did purchase a motherboard with onboard video, with all of the other components, some recommended above, and some not. I came in at a shade under $800.00, including tax and shipping. They are supposed to start arriving tomorrow.
Hopefully, all of the components work together.
I appreciate you, and all of the others who replied with comments and advice.

Does the "Preferred Location" option include "In the trunk" so kidnap victims can be fed?

While I fully appreciate the fact that not everyone is a gear-head...for most people a car represents a major investment, even if you're just leasing. If you've made such a major investment and can't even name the make and model of your own car...then yeah, as far as I'm concerned, you can go without pizza.
But then, this is Domino's we're talking about. Not much of a punishment.
I have a new laptop and I decided to go ahead and try the built-in email client that is installed on Win10. -- Aside: Notice that I don't even know the name of this app? Microsoft isn't very good at naming stuff.
Anyways, I connected to my email server and email arrived in my inbox but there was no way to scroll through them.
Oh..........isn't that quaint? The scrollbar appears when you hover over that area. That's a ingenious idea.
It's so I have more space. But I have plenty of space so I search and learn how to make Scrollbars always appear. that's a nice waste of time.
So here is my big question. When would any user want to have to hover over the scrollbar so it can appear (thus the user is sitting and waiting for the scrollbar to appear)?
Oh, you say, on pad type of devices the screens are smaller so this enables the user to see 2 more characters than they would otherwise be able to see and then they can hover and see the scrollbar.
Except pads usually don't offer a hover-type of functionality do they? Well maybe Surface does since you use a mouse with it. But for most there would be no cursor (since a finger is used as the pointer) and no hover ability so it just doesn't make sense to me.
