Why do you want to change any of them ? Do you have any problems with your current setup ? Because upgrading the CPU won't give you a noticeable boost in performance.
And changing the motherboard isn't worth it either,unless you need CrossFire.

Well in my opinion, dont change anything. It's a decent stuff you got there. If you really want a new mobo, wait until am3+ comes out.

Why not try ssd for the meantime?

what is motivating you for the upgrade?? Is it that you want SLI/Croosfire?? becuase the ASUS M4A77TD does not support as many PCIE slots? is it that the ASUS M4A77TD also doesn't have as high memory (1800 vs 2000*OC*) vs the Asus formula?

Thinking of crossfire, and a better chipset. But thats about it. I want a SSD but they are so expensive for Good name brand. What SSD would you guys recommend?

Then get a new motherboard only(890FX chipset),no need to get a new CPU.
