I am looking at using the following if anyone could help to make sure I won’t have any problems would be great.

The graphics card you select for drafting depends on what CAD program/s you run. Post the program/s.

The type of graphics card that best suits your needs for those apps is not the best gaming card. That said, cards geared toward Autocad are expensive. Look at the link below. Google for pricing and sticker shock.

Ram 4gb (2x2gb), u do realize u will need 64bit os.
Pay attention to voltage (1.5v for ddr3) and ddr3 1333 will be enough.

This is a new rig so stick to dx 11 video cards. Go with gtx 460

u don't need 1000w psu, look for corsair tx 650.

I think onboard sound do the job fine.

-Great CPU and motherboard choice. And what a fantastic sound card!

-Why would you want a Rosewill when you can get a 750w Corsair for $20 less? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...
Wattage isn't everything. The Corsair is a better PSU.

-Seriously, that's a f**king expensive case, and it doesn't even look good! You can get a good looking case with great cooling for half that!

-Only 4GB of RAM? That Phenom X6 deserves more. Spend less on the case and get 8GB.

-The GTX 460 is easily the fastest card you listed.

Thanks I will take a look at the site when I get home. Is there a happy middle on the video cards. The other thing would be the mother board is this a good one. I wanted the 6 core just thinking it would be faster and allow me to do more at one time.

Oh man, I didn't even notice that was an EATX board...lol.
Is there any reason you need EATX? Looks like you'll only be running a sound card and single video card.

Crossfire is the ATI solution for multiple graphics cards. SLI is the nvidia equivalent. Unless the specs expressly state either can be used (possible) then it is whatever is specified.

How complicated are the drawings you work with in Autocad. As I stated above CAD workstations use a different class of graphics card. Not as good for gaming. Conversely, the choices you are making are not as good for Autocad.

I suggest you check the Autodesk site for guidance.
