So i will be entering in Computer Science program and would like to build a PC for programming/coding to use Java, Python, C++ , Javascript, SQL etc. My budget is $800 CAD, will this be enough? I’m not looking to game with this PC though.

Will this be enough the monitor as well?

Do i need 2700x, and 32GB memory for programming and coding? Im not going to play games with the pc btw

depends on how intense the programming and coding is.

If it isn't intense, dropping to 2600/16GB/mATX nets the monitor:

Sorry I’m not knowledgeable about this but what’s the difference between Micro motherboard and other sizes?

mATX is a smaller version of ATX, most of the stuff is the same.

Is there no difference in performance?
