New build for CAD - no gaming Tags: New Build Gaming CAD New Build Systems Product Last response: July 11, 2011 5:33 AM in Systems Share jacob July 11, 2011 12:52:54 AM A friend of mine is asking me to help him with a build for under $600, basically it's just gonna be used for AUTOCAD and other programs like it. He wants an Intel based machine with a motherboard and on-board video, that's it. Any suggestions? Thanks.
