Based on the fact your are going to use an older AutoCAD product and Rino 3D (assuming version 4.0) those system specs look pretty good. The only thing I would recommend is going with a i7 processor, you will get much faster rendering then using the i5

Once Rino 3D 5.0 comes out I would recommend upgrading to 64bit Windows to utilize more RAM. And if you were to upgrade to a newer version of AutoCAD I would also recommend going with Windows 7 64bit as the memory allocation is much improved compared to XP and Vista.
