I'm not sure why you guys are suggesting 2600K's.... or any other CPU over $150 for that matter. Read the man's budget and software requirements.

yeah... i know i'm kinda in the wrong forum here, i think its fair to say that most people on here are gamers ( no offence to anyone ) but drafting and rendering is not the same as gaming.

Yes SSD's are amazing, even with quick loading times, whats the point if it the CPU is maxing 100% for 8 hours a day and slows to a crawl while trying to draw complex shapes, and loading of the program is still CPU dependent, even with an SSD it would still be considered a 'slow' loading time compared to an SSD on a modern processor.

I'm not looking for a jesus christ computer, as this is all coming out of my pocket, and fast computer or slow computer, my paycheck will still be what it is. Obviosly, less time wasted waiting on a machine is more money saved by the company, but hey, i'm not management.

EDIT: I also don't really need an SSD either, for the work i'll be doing a standard HDD is good enough, and since i have about 3 of them laying around, i'll use one of them up ( and most of our drawings are on our servers ) and if i DID buy one, i would just get a nice one, and toss one from my home rig into the work station.

i3-2100 will be an significant upgrade to your P4. You already have P67 motherboard do you not? SSD is optional so you can cut that lose if you don't really want to pay for it.

Follow my suggestion above (ignore SSD). Get 2 HDDs if you can and RAID0 it.

Basically, with my current work computer, it takes a good 40 mins to boot up, and load AutoCad, so I'm loosing 40mins of time I could be working every day...

yeah, i'll probably look into your suggestion, and just scratch an HDD and use the one i have thats just sitting out.

and for RAM, I may toss the 8gig in my home rig into the work comptuer, and now i have a reason to go to 12 or 16 gig tongue.gif

i would say i3 2100. would have also suggested a 2105 with the HD3000 iGPU, but since u already have that p67 board there's no point. I'm running a workstation doing mostly 2D work right now, with a i5-2300/h61 mobo, no GPU yet. So yeah you dont really need a good GPU. I would reconsider that 4gb of ram tho. get at least 8gb.
and yeah, AutoCAD doesnt really make use of multiple cores so no need to get a quad.
if i were you i'd sell that p67 mobo and pick up a z68 and just go with iGPU.
