A budget build for autocad and photoshop

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

ok so am looking to build a PC which i will be using mainly for Autocad and photoshop etc no gaming so what parts do you guys recommend I have a tight budget of 1500$ so it should be in that.
I like intel and Nvidia as i already have experience in those. I need a computer which wont hang on me if i put a bit load on it it should be really fast tongue.gif .. its been a while since i built my last system so if you guys could help out with this i would really apperciate it
Thanks

Minimum of 16GB RAM is the first choice - I like Crucial but you can see what the best price is for good memory
CPU - i7 4770 which is about $300
CPU Cooler - could go with stock Intel but it's going to be noisy and if you are going to do lots of intensive rendering the CPU will get a little warm; lots of good coolers out there in the $30-50 range (I'm happy with my Enermax)
MoBo - ASUS H87-M Pro (don't need to OC) - $130
GPU - MSI GeForce GTX 660 - $210 (will be just fine for your use)

This gets you to about $690 for the core components. A Seasonic G-550 PSU is $80 and a good solid unit; you don't need any more power than that for this. You can get an SSD for the OS and programs and the Samsung EVO 840 250GB is great and will run about $150. If you can swing for a second one to use as a scratch disk for Photoshop that will really improve performance (don't know about AutoCAD programs much at all and whether they use scratch disks). I like my Fractal Designs Arc Midi R2 case, it will keep this system cool and is easy to build in so add another $100 for that. Pick the hard drive of your choice for data storage and that will add about $100.

Without the second SSD this runs about $1120 but does NOT include OS, monitor, keyboard and mouse. If you need those you can add it in.

You want an Nvidia 580 (best GPU compute card for CAD software, for the money - by a LONG shot). They can be found used/refurbished pretty regularly online, and will be your best option for a budget CAD machine by a huge margin.

Most CAD programs aren't multi-threaded, so an OC'd socket 1150 quad-core will actually out perform a socket 2011 12-threaded machine at lower clock speeds. Photoshop is more multithreaded, however so the exact balance of high clock speeds vs more cores is up to you.

For CAD work and 3D modeling in general, RAM is your friend. High speed RAM is your best friend.

I'm probably do:
GTX580: $100 (approx a 3 week delivery, but this is the cheapest option). You can get them delivered faster from eBay or the OCN marketplace (you don't have access since you don't have the rep), but they'll cost more.
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352021 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139013

OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116986
HSF: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181036 (if you get the Fractal) or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181032 (if you get the C70)

After that alphabet soup, you get a computer for ~$1200 + GPU, and since a 580 is $300 or less, without any shopping around or shipping delay on eBay, you should be set.

EVGA SuperNova G2 750 watts is 10$ less its a better unit and has 100 watts more and a longer warranty. Just saying that you get all that for 10$ less

It received nearly identical review scores everywhere I've seen it, it's physically oversized for it's wattage, and has a cheaper fan. The extra 100W is nice though.

Not saying it's a bad PSU at all, just commenting on there being a reason for the SeaSonic recommendation (primarily the significantly nicer cooling in it)... also, how often do people even keep the same PSU for 7 years? tongue.gif Oldest one I own is about 4 years old (it's a SeaSonic X750 Gold)

The 580 is faster than all new graphics cards when it comes to drafting and CAD work. They deliberately crippled new cards double-precision performance so they wouldn't compete with their Quadro and Tesla cards as much. The 580 is nearly as fast as the Nvidia Titan when it comes to 3D modeling work.

If you're planning to game on it as well, sure, go for the 770 because it's a much faster gaming card, but if you're just doing 3D work, the 580 is still hard to beat for the money you can pick them up for.

hmmm ,,,, I am not that much of a gamer + i dont have time for it.. so i guess lets see what happens .. if i could find the 580 brand new then i will go for it and if i didnt then i will go for 770 what say ?

there wont be any problems right ?
