Computer Build Up Suggestions
I have about $800 to spend, I might be able to scrounge up some more. I need to build a computer for home, to be used for drafting. I will be running AutoCAD 2004, 2002, and 2000. I will also be running a program used in my Industry called Autoquotes. It tends to be a memory hog, like AutoCAD. I would also like to play games from time to time. I want it to be as fast as possible, without spending way too much money. Also, this be be built from scratch, I don't even have a case I can use. I do have a monitor, but I need to get Windows XP Pro. Can any of you provide part numbers, or what you suggest as far as hardware? TIA. I have heard that if I use AMD, it would me much cheaper than Intel. IS AMD as reliable or more reliable than Intel?
