a while ago, i made a thread asking for suggestions cause i was building a computer for gaming...

this time i'm helping a person to build one for design in college, it's going to be used mainly for corel, photoshop and autocad (more to be listed probably)

the thing is, it's not a huge budget, but it need to have enough to make them work, i was thinking of:

2 gigs of ram
256mb for video
1.8ghz processor

i'm not familiar with those programs (except for photoshop) but my sister used to work with corel and autocad in our old computer which has 512mb of ram and something like a 1.3 processor and it worked decently (i can't say it was good)

so... any ideas/suggestions?
Can you actually list what parts you are using? Those numbers mean nothing.
