i really need to find a way to get this under 800, is there much difference between a 5750 and a 5670? which will last the longest?

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. no no you guys don't understand

    i am starting it

    not autocad or any of the big ones


    i mean like the 100 dollar ones that don't need much
  4. bump
  5. 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
