Suggestions for my upcoming build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Computer will be used primarily for programming and engineering design (autocad, etc), as well as watching movies and browsing the web. I'm wanting to have both Win 7 and Linux. The monitor is a 42" 1080p television. Anyways, I often over do it with my builds and go over the top, hence never capturing the true power of my builds. In addition, my builds change every year. Anyways, I am looking for a suggestion on a GPU and a CPU.

well if your autocad software supports multiple threads then a i7 2600k would be a good choice or if you dont plan to overclock then save some money and go for 2600 locked chip.

for graphics you did not mention games so a 560/460 should be good enough.
