I'm hoping some people can help me out by making me a parts list for $3,000. I also need a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and headphones included in the budget. I live in the United States, and I will be using this for gaming and some various cad work.

Just asking about your opinion here, I've researched a lot about AMD vs Intel, and I have read that Intel has faster single core speeds, but AMD has faster multi core speeds. What is your take on this, like how do you view AMD vs Intel? Do you like one over the other?

It depends largely on the situation. For a build like yours where core speed is more important and there is budget to support it, intel is the better choice.

People place a lot of emphasis on core count, but its really not as important as people make it out to be (most of the time). Modern programs aren't developed to properly utilize many cores because it costs a lot more in development time and complexity to do so. SolidWorks is a classic CPU workhorse example. It can properly utilize many cores, but after around six threads, the core count gives seriously diminishing returns. In this example, the 8600k would outperform the 1700x because the 8600k cores offer a higher saturation ceiling than the ryzen would.

Neither architecture is inherently better than the other, they just fill different places in the market. There is quite a lot to be said about the value that AMD offers for the dollar with their current releases, and there is a lot to be said about Intel's thread speed.

This is what I would go with. Has a ton of lighting capability, so it'll look gorgeous and play fantastically.
