Thats pretty funny.

 

Depends what you want to do. I wouldn't say any of them are really easy to learn.

 

Solidworks is one of the cheapest, but you personally might not be buying it at 15. Solidworks is good for more simple shapes and accurate engineering (not as easy to learn for quickly modelling complex shapes). For quickly modelling more complex shapes you might want to try using software like Alias or Rhino. Just have a look through the 3D section... most the more commonly used software will be mentioned there.

Have you considered the new Intel dual core CPUs - much cheaper than the AMD 64 ones - don't know if they are 64bit though!?

Much cheaper is very subjective. If you take a look at current pricing in the US the AMD 4200+ performs nearly identical if not better than the Pentium D 950, and it is $300 cheaper.

 

Intel has several very cheap dual core CPU's out but the bang for the buck is really still questionable. Either way I can personally attest for the rendering prowess of the Athlon X2.

 

Nate: That system looks pretty good. Again, I would avoid the cheap Quadro cards. You are going to lose performance if you make that switch.

I would agree with that - especially a 64mb model like the 330.

You could probably get away with a cheaper case - shouldn't mean any less performance but will be louder!

Don't bother with lightscribe dvd drive unless its absolutely essential - a normal drive should be a fair bit cheaper.
