Modern CPU built-in GPU is more than enough.

SSD is not required by recommended, 120G or so SSD should have more than enough space and they aren't expensive anymore.
(Hi Tony, its a long time we are not on the same "room".)

I have just purchased a system with I3-7350K and DDR4 3000.
It has the highest passmark rate for a single core and it is overclockable. I'll test it when components will be here.

The only "undersized" part is cache. I have a question: from you experience, which is the difference beetween a 40MB cache processor, a 20, an 8 and a 3MB one ?
