Default Building multiple computers for CAD drafters, would like input!

I'm currently look at computers with 8 gb of ram, and an i5-2500k. Do you know if the integrated graphics will be enough to run CAD?

Depends on the onboard graphics. Is it nvidia 6100 / 8200 or ATI?
the 6100 is slow but 8200 should be good enough

Yeah, but Intel graphics won't be accelerating anything worthwhile for you on those chips. You're better off going with a discreet card when paired up with the i5 / i7s

Oh you were planning to use the HD3000 onboard on the cpus. They are crap.
I thought you meant onboard graphics on motherboards.
