    Looks good save the spinny HD - you really want, no need, an SSD these days.

    ...and many go "Green Team" (NVidia) for Autodesk-orientated builds - capable as AMD are, I've personally not had a lot of joy with them.

    There are some great deals on i7-7700HQ processors and GTX 1060 graphics cards which pair well together... should be able to find one with an SSD (and yes, you need one) for ~$1,000. What's your budget?

    Thanks, I have $1000 (max). 7700hq ok it's better 6700hq but gtx instead of quadro or firepro, I wonder. Is gtx1060 more powerful than W5170M in autodesk software? Are you getting a gtx for working?

    Don't worry about 7700 vs 6700 - at this performance level, that's not the concern. GTX1060 (mobile) annihilates the W5170M. Revit uses DX, so "gaming" cards like GTX work just as well as Quadro/FirePro.
