$1500 Intel Based Computer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've been on this forum and on computers in general.

I have a school project that I need some help on.

My teacher has given us "$1500" (its just pretend) to make a computer that can play games at max settings to doing intense CPU programs such as AutoCAD etc.

I revolved my build around Intel because I think Intel would be a very fit choice for a $1500 build.

All the parts have to come from Canadian based websites.

Feel free to input any of your ideas and thoughts and making the best possible $1500 machine.

Thanks smile.gif

so u want us to do ur home work ? biggrin.gif am fine with it

but the question is i can make it for less then 1500$ will that be considered better?
or want the most performance for 1500$ ?

because the Auto Cad don't benifit from multi cores, it only support multi core in 2D regeneration and MentalRay rendering

If you are not concerned with real-time then gpu won't matter too much, however a good gpu will still helps,

will best thing is while u not using 2d regeneration and mental ray u will be on 1 cpu so u go overclock 1 core and leave the others that way u can acheive best performance possiple for that time, and when u go for 2d regeneration or mental ray that time u shut down the overclock and let the 4 cores go on stock or how much u can reach of ghz,

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/128Tu , 1458$ in us

links for canada the rest of the $ put in a gpu with Cuda cores as much as u can afford
