Looking for some easy to use software that will allow me to make one of my ideas.

Just want to design what it looks like, no need for accurate measuring, just need textures and stuff to make it look nice :)

Any suggestions?

not enough information is given for anyone to answer this. is it small? is it a building? does it use lots of graphics? is it electronic? As the question is written, no one will be able to answer this intelligently.

If you look at it intelligently you could presume that I am looking for something a bit basic, it being a product I doubt a building comes under that and that I am new to this doing something that would require a lot of graphics would be a bit hard don't you think?

an intellectual knows better then to assume, they also know how to ask a good question.

You could try Google Sketchup: http://www.sketchup.com/intl/en/product/gsu.html

If you're looking for something more professional then Sketchup you could try Autodesk Inventor or AutoCAD. They have free student licensing so if you're a student (and can prove it) you can get free licenses for quite a few of their products.
