Default Re: AutoCAD solution

A good gaming GPU would be okay for CAD work I think. All the ones built for 3D are far too expensive for people to consider.

Anything that can push around polygons is good, though I'm not sure whether CAD programs use polygons in the same way all other 3D packages do.

The desktop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883227274 may be an option

The netbook: ~$300

Actually, the other one with the 5770 would be better for gaming and most likely for CAD work due to the superior video card.
