$400 CPU/mobo/graphics combo for 3dsMax / Rhino3D Tags: New Build CPUs Graphics Systems Last response: January 6, 2013 6:10 PM in Systems Share somerain January 6, 2013 6:04:47 PM Hello everyone! I'm trying to build a PC on a pretty small budget for my sister, who is an architecture student (in Greece). It will be used for Rhino 3D, 3ds Max, Autocad, Photoshop and such stuff. (no gaming at all) Assuming 16gb of memory is required for such applications, that leaves me a maximum of $400 (300€) for a cpu/mobo/graphics card combo. So i guess the main question is, where to put the money, cpu or gpu? Any recommendations?
