looking for a new pc to run autocad2012, i7 2600 seem to give enought juice for evrything and for a 3-4 years sure, i don't thinck going with less than brand new quadro 600 1gb w/ 8gbram 1333 and p/s of 550watts
thats for some of the component but the motherboard giving me ''headack' for that kind of processeur that easy its the 1155 socket with a p67 chipset but does the size matter?
I went with an ATX style. You need a bigger case, but it allows easier access to stuff. A smaller micro ATX may limit how big a graphics card you can fit in too. (Mine needed 2 slots). The unavailability of an ASUS in the ATX size and the model # I wanted at the time forced me to use a MCI board, but I'm as happy with it as I would have been with the ASUS.
