Well,
I'm trying to make a basic, inexpensive CADding PC. Here's what I've thought of so far:

AMD FX-6100 Processor
Komputerbay 16GB (2x 8GB) PC3-10600 10666 1333MHz DDR3 1333 DRAM
Gigabyte AMD 760G + SB710 Chipset DDR3 1333 AM3+ Micro ATX Motherboard
Force3D ATI Radeon HD5450 Video Graphics Card
Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w
ASUS(PCE-N15) Wifi Card
Western Digital 1 TB WD Blue
NZXT Guardian Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Case 921RB-BL
Logitech Desktop MK120 Mouse and keyboard
Viewsonic's VA2448M-LED 24-Inch Monitor
Ubuntu


Any thoughts?

What's your budget? If you are cading I would suggest Intel instead and 1600mhz RAM (keeping 16GB).

You can build a 2500k based rig with a good 650w Corsair PSU and 560ti for 774 on Newegg. If we drop down the 560ti to a card not needed for gaming we can substitute my 500GB drive for a 1TB or use the 500 and add an SSD and your 16GB of RAM. Probably a 3570k too. Give me a minute to unload my car and I'll link you said parts if you're interested. Would probably under or around 750.

Ok, do you absolutely need the 1TB for space? I think a very good addition to a working computer would be an SSD for very fast loading times. Isn't necessary but I personally believe every computer should have one.

Is that NZXT your choice, or were you just going with cheap?

I dont need the 1TB, I just like excess, but 500GB is fine

A SSD is good as well, but I'm going cheap

And the NZXT is cheap and looks nice. I like a fancy, shiny case :P

It looks kind of like how I had my Raidmax back in 2003

Sorry it took so long to build this up, but I think this will be much faster than the 6100. Don't let those modules fool you.

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-3450 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.5GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637I53450

RAM:
Newegg.com - Kingston 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model KVR16N11K2/16

Motherboard:
Newegg.com - MSI Z68A-G43 (G3) LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

PSU:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

SSD:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

HDD:
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641AS-RK 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

GPU:
Newegg.com - ASUS EAH5450 SL/DI/512MD3/MG(LP) Radeon HD 5450 512MB 32-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Case:
Newegg.com - NZXT Guardian 921 RB 921RB-001-BL Black SECC steel chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Total price is $722 all on Newegg. Leaves you enough room for an optical drive IF you need one. I didn't think you would though since you are using Ubuntu. Flash drives FTW.

Well, any cheaper CPU alternatives?
I can get 16GB ram for like $40
I dont need that big of a HDD, and you can cheap out on the case.
The graphics card should be a gig tho

Well you said under 750, and that is under 750. What is the real budget?

Sure you can get slower 16GB of RAM for cheaper, but it's slower. There is a difference between going from say, DDR2 800, to DDR3 1333, then 1333 to 1600. After that, not much of a difference in speed besides benchmarks.

You can substitute the GPU for this one with 1GB of RAM.
