Ok,
I'm new to all this and need some help. I need a prebuilt that I use for Auto Cad/ Photo Shop and Sketchup.
On prebuilts .... for around $1,000 I can get either the AMD PhenomII Six core / 8 GB Memory? 1 TB HHD The card that come with them are HD 5450 /5750 /6670 I can also get a i7 same Memory etc: with a GTX 530.
So what card do I go with, or what prebuilt would you recommend?
Thanks for your help.

GTX 530? wuttt? do you mean GT 530. or is it GTX 580?. well if its a 580 you will be ok for what your gonna do. You don't need anything pro. But that I7 will last you alot longer than the Phenom six core

The i7 would be better but you'd probably want to replace the gpu.

The 6 core with the 6670 is decent.

well the i7 cpu is more powerful

its fine if it comes with a gt as long as its more powerful than the 530.

Something with 440 or higher would be good.
