Here is an intel build idea. This would be pretty fast for that budget and have plenty of multitasking. Also the motherboard is supposed to have good onboard audio which is a plus. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/jakecru/saved/67vqqs

Since he's doing CaD work, he most likely would want 16 GB of RAM.

16gb ram or 8 ive worked wit both and had no complaits about either.. only time it mattered was when i was rendering very large structures with multiple layers/levels. then the 16gb really came out to shine there

That CPU will die a horrible, horrible death in that configuration.

So it would essentially burn the processor up horribly...

Yup, unfortunately. These FX 9000 series chips are not your average CPU.
