Are you on a tight budget?!

Well, that CPU's not up to much, for starters. I think you should spend just a little bit more (30, $50) on a better CPU. Since you need a system to do many things (you mentioned the photoshopping in there, you really need something for a well-rounded system, the AMD FX-4100, say. Link here

You'll also need quite a lot of ram for Photoshop and CAD design. I recommend 8GB AT LEAST. And make sure you get a 64-bit OS so you can make use of all of that RAM.

Tell us how you get on!

You will need to say your budget and why you are picking this CPU so we can better help you. This CPU is a low-end solution and performance is not the best.
