Well a lot of the PC's that claim to be good for high end CAD work cost $2400.

I haven't built this but I'm working on a really inexpensive machine for the kids to play Minecraft, SC2, and handle Online videos and school work.

I had AVG years ago and hated it because every time it needed to update its virus definitions it needed to reboot. This happened at least once a day. Sometimes 2-3 times. I found that majorly aggravating. Maybe they've fixed it I don't know. I haven't been back. I love Avast.

Thanks! I've been really happy with it. I've particularly enjoyed the monitor, It is so crisp, vivid, and glare-free.

Wow! Very nice! You mentioned making your own window in the top of the case. How did you do that?

All of these builds are missing 2 critical components to making a working box: an optical drive and an operating system, so the prices are a little deceptive IMO. (not to mention montior, keyboard, and mouse) What is the philosophy behind leaving those out, because this seems pretty consistent with other builds you've posted?

Thanks! So much to learn. I have also noticed that this PSU has only 1 8-pin GPU connector, but a lot of the video cards I've seen need 2 8-pin connections.

I'm going to have to get an 8-pin cable extender in order to route the EPS under the back, but I would love to do that. As it is it will probably get in the way of any video card I add.

As far as the PSU, I estimated that everything I want to eventually add will need about 400W. Will that be ok or is that like maxing out the RPMs on a car, which you can do but it is hard on it?

Yup, doing mostly cad work, and if it runs games well that's a bonus. I was surprised when I added up everything I could imagine putting on it and it came to 395 watts.
