My dad's looking to move beyond his five-year-old budget Dell and wants me to build him a PC. The only thing he wants to do with it (aside from basic activities like web-browsing, card games, word processing, etc) is CAD. I've been thinking something along these lines might work:
All of his CAD is software-rendered, so I saw little need to go with a dedicated graphics card (though he should be able to upgrade easily if he wants to later). That's also why I picked that CPU. Any alternate suggestions or does this all look okay?
Minor Correction - it's FORTRON not FORTUNE. Easy mistake to make.
I really like my FSP power supply - though any solid name brand should suffice for your father. If you ever intend to put in a huge power hungry graphics card such as the 8800 you will want to choose the PS very carefully - however it doesn't seem like that will ever be the case.
