Checkout KiCad. It's free, it has a huge library. They have a strong 
support group on Yahoo. Also Cad models for different components. They 
also have utilities to convert libraries from other Eda tools. Just 
recently, someone converted all the libraries from Eagle. There's 
another person which created a library which has dozens and dozens of 3D 
cad models for components too.
