What's your budget? You might want to think about a Xeon or an i5. Instead of two 7850s, get a single GTX 670 or Radeon 7950. You always want the single strongest card you can get as opposed to two weaker ones.

if you are doing so CAD work, cuda on nvidia cards might help out more than OpenCL on the amd cards

I think for now my budget is right around 1200 but idealy id like to keep it as low as possible. As far as the processor goes i did look into the i5 and i7 and thought that the extra cores in the amd might be helpful in cad and what not, but im by no means an expert.

the motherboard should work out fine with the CPU


if you want overclocking, a fx 8320 is a good way to go as well. more power consumption, but will perform better from a overclock

same rig but add this cooler. email noctua for a amd mounting kit. the kit inside the box was designed for lga 2011, but with a new mounting kit, it should work fine
