  1. Hi

    I am looking to build a new PC as I think mine has seen better days

    I want it for internet, gaming and Autocad

    I live in the UK and was hoping to spend about £300-350

    Is it possible to get a decent spec for this price?

    Also I have never built a PC before and any tips would be appreciated

    No, you'd need at least double that budget for something that is good for AutoCAD, since AutoCAD is very demanding of the CPU and graphics card. Also, a gaming graphics card will not necessarily be suitable for AutoCAD as per my experience. Other members may be able to give you better advice though, so stick around for some time.
