Additional Comments: I already have a mid atx case that I plan on using. The 3d cad software would be Autodesk inventor
. I would say that I am a mid-core gamer so I don't need the best of the best looks. I have some old IDE disk drives that I can use if buying adapters is cheaper than a new drive. I've been looking around for awhile and put something together. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/15wih That's what I came up with.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: To give 3d modeling a smoother experience for long drafting sessions.
