It's Socket A...

If you're gonna be doing CAD and gaming, you're gonna need AT LEAST a socket 754 system, preferrably a 939 one...

look at newegg. it depends if u want amd or intel. for amd, look at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131584

for intel:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128294

they're both under $100. i personally recommend amd but intel's not bad. its a personal preference.

AMD is focused more on gaming... Intel is more for everyday use things... each has there own pros and cons, defintly not a personal preference..
