about the r90, i thought about that, but then i thought i always wanted to watercool, plus i heard aftermarket isnt coming out until like 2014... which kinda sucks, at first i heard they were coming out at the end of November

at end of November were the aftermarket R9 290X cards, aftermarket R9 290x will be reayd for 2nd week of december or january 2014

Hi. CAD draftsman here

Autodesk products have a memory leakage problem. 4 Gigs is enough, but 8 gigs gives good piece of mind and is worth the extra money.

I wouldnt go with the AMD has AutoCAD is predominately single threaded
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=15224826&linkID=9240617

A 660 will be sufficient for what hes planning on doing.

2x2GB for $45 is "off the value cliff." It's no-longer a mainstream "size" of memory to buy for a rig, so it is naturally over-priced per gig. 2x4GB is ~$50. [ http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f312800cl9d8gbsr ]


Best VALUE discrete gaming GPUs for pro-apps that are accelerated through mainstream API standards (opengl, opencl, directx) are currently in the HD7750-HD7950 range for *most* apps. In some cases, competing NV cards will be competitive alternatives, but not always, depends on the specific program in question and which version standards and which features/versions those programs call on, as AMD has better version support for openCL/DirectX and a better architecture for some openCL work. Cuda is a separate proprietary issue that you will know whether or not you need.

There are some apps that do not benefit from increasing GPU power beyond a certain threshold, and limited scenarios (video editing and scientific research) that may make use of greater GPU power. As an example, Photoshop does not benefit significantly (or at all, in many cases) from GPU power beyond that of an HD7750 (roughly). Investment beyond the power of a 2GB HD7870 does not represent a good value for Autocad as price/performance drops off considerably from there on up.


Not sure how price sensitive things are with the motherboard, but I'm guessing the $80 case and high quality PSU means there's room to budge on the mobo..

Here's the mobo I would use for this sort of "ultra-boring, ultra stable, ultra long lasting desktop rig made from quality parts:" http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-q87mecsm
Asus Q87 Corporate Stable Model Micro board. Yea, it's "really" boring. But rest assured this is a board that you can count on for the long haul, and count on good long term support for as well.
3 year warranty vs 1 year for the ASrock.... interesting wink.gif

Thread Starter 

well, i ordered the day before thanksgiving and i got him 8 gigs of ram, i chose that mobo because the pro4 mobos are used a lot, plus it is about $40 cheaper than the asus. the gpu i'm giving him mine, so i didnt have to fit it in the budget, whats even better is that i get an r9 290 because of it :D
