I'm going to put a computer together for AutoCAD, but my question is which CPU is the best for this? Budget is around $600 and I can go some what above this. I was thinking about going for an 8320? I figure more cores would be better for this. I also would like it to be able to play games at a decent level.
I'm not looking for a full build, just what CPU and probably a GPU I should be looking at for the price. $600 is for the whole build just not the CPU & GPU.
The 8320 can be overclocked to 8350-level and is generally regarded as a decent CPU, but Intel CPUs are much better for gaming. For $600 for an entire build, an FX-6300 or Intel i3-4330 are better, though, because they're cheap while still performing well.
