Swap the hdd out for:

And the ram out for:

No to the GPU as it's made for gaming, not CAD. Either FirePro/FireGL or Quadro is out of your price range.

No need for DX11. Almost all software is still behind tech & won't make use of DX11. Swap the GPU out for a cheap one that fit the budget.

i don't need a workstation card

i am sorry if i wasn't clear before but these are my requirements:

a beginner basic CAD computer for under 800

i prefer new ATI 5xxxx cards for future proofness and slight gaming

i will over clock so the quad core and RAM can be more basic and slower

and i don't need more than 320 GB


what i am looking for is the same parts for a lower price or similar parts for a better price

The 500GB drive wasn't suggested for the extra capacity. The 500GB drive is considerably faster than the 320GB model due to higher data density.

CAD software takes a lot of RAM. You shouldn't even be considering this build if you can't get AT LEAST 4GB. A lot of CAD machines run 8GB - 12GB of RAM depending on what platform they're built on.

The guys are right - cheapo quad power coupled with at least 4GB RAMs and a relatively fast/decent HDD would serve u well! Here is a $659 AR suggested config
