Well since you arent really a gamer intel will probably be best the autocad software can make use of some of the intel features better than an AMD can the amds kinda make up for that by being slightly cheaper but i would stick to the cpu you have know. 1024x768 is a pretty low resolution so that wont be to bad. You could try a fx5200 or radeon 9250 they are both cheap pci cards and infintiely better than any integrated gfx. They should manage auto cad ok without lagging up until you het to really complex drawings.

Yeah i didnt think you would need a sound card, i would check on if there are any penalties for using all the ram slots. You will need to look up the motherboard manual for that. If there is you would be as well just using the two 2GB sticks.
