New Build ~$700! - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Thread Starter 
Appreciate the input guys, sorry for my late reply, got called out of town on short notice.

Anyway, so we'll go with the Gigabyte mobo, will stick with Intel CPU. Now for gpu, it sounds like the 660 would be a better option than the 7850 since the Nvidia card would work better with CAD etc.?

It does look like we'll have to kick the budget up some to get everything he wants. Right now we're sitting at about $850.

The AMD cards are far better for GPGPU tasks so I'd check if the software he uses support AMD acceleration. I know Autodesk software does through it is limited in some parts to professional video cards like Nvidia Quadro or AMD FirePro.

EDIT: Looks like AutoCAD is better optimized for Nvidia...

I'll run it by him, he's graduating with a Civil Engineering degree, I'll see what programs he uses.

Well it depends on if Autocad is supporting OpenGL, if it is, radeon will destroy anything Nvidia can put out, if not, and GTX series will beat it. Its really a one sided battle. But I do have to say that Nvidia does ALOT better with live-rendering then radeon, I know because I edit videos and Ive used both. I'm not sure but I think thats important with autocad.
