BUDGET RANGE: $600 Before Rebates - I am trying to keep it as low as possible but will creep up if it is worth it
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Autocad 2010 in 2D only, Autocad Civil 3D 2010 but I only use the 2D features, Excel, Word, Adobe photoshop CS3, outlook. I run a lot of these programs at the same time. One day I might drop a video card in and play a game.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Harddrive - I have a spinpoint f3 500gb, keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS - I plan to run Windows 7
