Hello,
I work with AutoCAD, Photoshop, Microsoft Office and In Design primarily. I often have all of these applications open and active at once. My current system (Intel P4) is slow and often locks up. I have used both Windows XP and Windows 7 (32 bit)and both seem to be about the same. I am willing to build another computer, but want to know right CPU, motherboard and video card to use. Can anyone help?

Like I say to anyone planning on buying a new CPU these days - DO wait until June 20th when Bulldozer comes out. You never know what that might bring.

Since you don't play games ,therefore I think a high speed dual core would be suffcient.
Go for intel core i3 2120 and AMD Radeon HD 6570.I would suggest a h61 based chipset like ASUS P8H61-M , MSI H61M-P23 or whatever you like.Moreover I would suggest you to add an SSD of size 40GB or more .That would give you great system responsiveness.
Or you might wait for Liano APUs from AMD.
