Please...Please...PLEASE DO NOT GET the X800 Pro. I have that card, and it sucks, and you will regret getting it, as I do and everybody I know who has gotten that card does. Get an X800XL for not much more expensive, or a 6800 GT, which would be your best choice IMO.

Other than that, I have to say wow, man your spending a lot of money. Put a decent graphics card in there, and It could be an owning system.

Even if this machine isn't for gaming? It seems like every top of the line hardware is targeted toward gamers now. o.O With exception to the servers//workstations. But alrighty then, I'll go check out a 6800 GT.

Forget about putting a powerful graphics card in if it's not designed for gaming. What's the use?

So then what kind of card would you recommend? I at least want it to be capable of good things in AutoCAD and SketchUP
