Default Decent build for under $600.00?

Can I do a decent build for under $600.00? Dont need anything special. Will be running web based stuff like emails also quickbooks and autocad 2000. All I need is the tower, no mouse, keyboard or monitor needed. Was hoping for an I5, but I3 will do if necessary to stay low on price. Would really appreciate any help with parts if so.

Do you need a copy of OS and absolutely no games?

Not sure if you need a copy of windows but this was just a quick build in your budget minus $50 to put a tower of your choice in there.

Wrong CPU to motherboard, PSU too high wattage for non gaming machine, and no GPU necessary

If you need an OS just knock the case down to a cheap 30 dollar one and you're set.

DOH I must have clicked the wrong one LOL As for GPU a on board may be taxed even though he is running a old version of autocad, He will be in trouble if he updates to one of the newer versions the offer to students for low money
