I need help to build my new pc. I use Autocad and other architectural soft wares. I think i5-3570 & Asrock z77 extreme 4 mobo suit for me. Now I need advise whether
1) SSD and Graphic cards are must for faster performance? If so can I get both around $120?
2) which Ram 2x4gb is good?
Please help.

You need to list a firm budget for the graphics card; newegg must carry at least 400 new ones priced at $30 to over $600. For the ram, go with corsair, crucial, kingston, gskill, or hynix (samsung) in cl9 1333 or 1600 1.5v ddr3 with heat spreader. They start at around $40 in the usa.

Hi

SSD are coming down in price a lot recently 240GB for about £150 (UK pounds) (cheaper than 180GB version ??)
120GB for about £80/£90
This is enough to install windows & programs BUT not your data so you also need a fast hard disk.

SSD will reduce Windows startup time significantly.
Though once Windows is ready to use may not be that much faster in CAD program

Some one with a old version of Autocad was asking if it would work under Windows 7 or Virtual XP in Windows 7
( a good reason to get Windows 7 professional rather than Home)
also will it work with Windows 7 (64 bit version) if not using Virtual XP.

list of minimum and recommended hardware/software

Graphics cards suitable for CAD are not the same as those used for Games
Also a lot depends on what sort of screen you are using.
