AutoCAD recommends going with the Quadro or FirePro GPUs vs consumer/gaming GPUs:

"Important: Although Autodesk tested the NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon consumer graphics cards, it is Autodesk, NVIDIA, and AMD policy to only recommend and support the professional NVIDIA Quadro and AMD FirePro graphics family cards. See the NVIDIA Quadro vs. GeForce GPUs White Paper." You might want to consult AutoCADs site...

I'm no expert though I've helped a few friends spec or build out AutoCAD and Solidworks rigs. Googling "best Autocad laptops" will get you a nice list to start from, though they'll be pricier (as their "workstation" class) machines than mid-level gaming rigs, but better suited for what you're doing...
