    Default Looking for Build Suggestion

    Hey Buddy,

    As I'm a student, I'm not able to spend much on PC Parts so I'm confused about which graphics card should I choose in my build?

    Here is my build which I'm thinking to buy, please guide me is this graphics card okay for my build? And please help me in reducing the cost of my build.

    Due to the holidays, you may need to wait a bit before anyone with that knowledge comes around to help you out.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    I can't speak much for gaming, but AutoCAD and CAMtasia run just fine on most stock pc builds these days.
    Since you mention cost, I should point out that you could go onto most computing manufacturer websites 'outlet' areas and pick up a return or refurb for a fraction of your estimated cost here that would be more than sufficient. I've been successfully using those types of machines (all laptops) for years without any issue.

    If you want to be extra careful and make sure your graphics card will be sufficient, you can check the official approved list from Autodesk here.

    You should also check out:
    The requirements differ depending on what AutoCAD software and version you're using.
    Civil 3D requirements are higher than AutoCAD and there was a significant jump in requirements for the 2019 versions so look for requirements for the software and version you will be using.
    Your specs are a lot better than I've ever had the chance to work on. I've always had a better PC at home than work for running AutoCAD.
