Unless they have changed Autocad it isn’t that big a RAM hog. My daughter has worked with it professionally for years and gets by with the recommended 256Mb.

If your motherboard has dual channel memory you want two sticks of RAM to make up the total regardless of how much you choose.

mobo Asus K8N AMD ATHLON 64 Motherboard (nForce3 250 , SATA , LAN, 8 channel Audio)

so with dual channel memory is two sticks of 512mb faster then 1 stick of 1gb?
so autocad not as bad as ps7 in terms of ram.
