Hey I'm trying to put together a nice computer to run some minor CAD (Solidworks,Matlab) but mostly blu-ray watching/burning and other multimedia. I had another thread where I wanted to go with a i7 but found out that was way to expensive. Budget is about $1,000 give or take. Also, I have a 23" Acer monitor with HDMI in so if change the card I want it to have HDMI out.
First of all will everything work together?
Is the PSU big enough?
The HIS says it supports OpenGL 3.0 so does that mean it will work with Solidworks better?
Or should I get a cheaper card?
Is that SSD any good? I have an external 1.5TB for anything that I don't use that much or don't need it(movies/music).
I don't know much about what RAM I should get... probably stick with 4GB until I can get some more money to add more
Alright well I've read a couple reviews and have refined my list... Does this look any better? I splurged for the Intel SSD and found a cheaper card that should work... Also got a bigger PSU and different RAM.
