That's not a build post. Its not complete or detailed.

Seeing you got a Phenom, that'd be where you should start. Change your cpu and mobo to at least fx8320 and 990fx chipset or go for Intel - i5 and 97 chipset mobo.

It's your CPU. An i5 of some type would be ideal to match your 780, probably an i5-4590 or i5-4460. You could get an H97 or Z97 motherboard. The Z97 boards are the ones for overclocking, and I don't consider that worthwhile.
