    in my opinion u should get an asrock 780gxe or 790gx (the gx version is one of the most overclocking amd boards), you should keep ur processor and concentrate on a video card (if u game a lot), if not, well, get a 4850 (4830 i think will be within ur budget) and a phenom x4 or x3 8750

    As far as the video cards go I'm getting either the 4850 or 4870 depending on the money situation at christmas... I WANT to go phenom x4 if I can afford it. If not, I'm staying with my current board and just upgrading to a better dual core (either the 6000+ or a 5400+ BE)

    are Asrock boards decent... I haven't heard too much about them...
