I want to build 2 computers strictly for use with AutoCAD and the such... it is for mainly home office use, so nothing too fancy. What are good "bang-for-the-buck" components to go in such a system? It doesn't need to be pretty or silent or anything, just run well.
P.S. - Trying to keep costs (including monitor) as low as possible--aiming for ~$1200 or less for each system... a little more is fine though.

you should go online to some sort of cad forums too see what they are using.. IMHO I dont think 1200 bucks will get what your wanting for a powerhouse workstation..
