Design and 3D modelling? You will be interested in LGA2011 processor and a Nvidia Quadro.
What is your budget?

Or just get a 4770K and a GTX 760 if this exceeds your budget.

There is seriously no advantage of the 3820 over the overall cheaper 4770k.

The 4770K is based on haswell and the 3820 is based on Sandy Bridge, so the 4770k is way faster.

Serioulsly you are overpaying for less performance.

The 3820 makes no sense at all.

Well.. if you are talking about just GPU, Motherboard and GPU, then this is the best combination for 1000 dollars. Way better than the 3820. It is 6 core 12 thread CPU.

And if you are looking for a complete build then this option is very good too.

+ That Xeon CPU is basically just a 4770 as it has 4 cores, 8 threads, is based on haswell. Just it cannot be overclocked.
+ The Xeon actually has advantage when it comes to stuff like designing and graphics stuff.
+ 16GB RAM is plenty for designing stuff
+ Nvidia 770 is a beast card, whether for gaming or for editing.
+ Antec's 80 Plus Platinum PSU is seriously awesome. Offers stellar quality for a good price.
+ 2TB HDD for storing your stuff.
+ NZXT Tempest 210, seriously awesome case.

Yes, they have more cores and they are cheaper. But the 8350 still is less powerful than the Xeon that I listed here.

They make up great workstations at very low budget but for $1000 budget the Intel is more powerful. Especially the Xeon CPU that I listed here costs about the same as the 8350 anyways.

The Xeon is simply better performing than the 8350.
