Can't help with this.  I have a lot of trouble getting my monitor to
be acceptable myself.

Check out ports.   Read about the ports system in the handbook
and then cd to /usr/ports and start looking for things that would
work for you.    From /usr/ports   try running   make search=string  to
look for something.   For example enter   make search name="cad"
NOTE that most ports need to be installed with root.

Have fun,
