Hey Guys,

I currently have a Gigabyte AM2+ board (it's a bit older). Started getting blue screens, figured it was my drive -so I snagged an SSD, reformatted... Same blue screens.

I'm guessing it's the mobo or RAM so I'm just going to use it as an excuse to replace both.

Looking for suggestions on what to go with.

Here is what I currently have:

Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
8GB 800MHz DDR2
Kingston SSDNOW SV100S2128G
1TB SATA and 250GB SATA
HD5870
Corsair 750w PSU

I'm thinking AM3 with SATA and USB 3.0 and 8GB of DDR3 1600 memory.

Any suggestions on models/brands and/or alternative ideas?

PS. I'm comfortable spending $350-400 total to upgrade both.
