Anyways, my dad has been out of the loop since he switched industries and well anytime I go home and have to use any one of his computer i do a big . So i told him I would build him one so long he provided the mulla for the parts. It will be used mainly as his server (for about 3 other computers) and won't be used for gaming, the most intense application will be AutoCAD. I have put together a preliminary list of parts, some unknown and would love some additional input.
