New AMD Phenom II 1055T Box - please suggest

Hello Folks,

Building a new PC and wanted to get some feedback. I currently have this power supply laying around and a 500gb sata drive, so I obviously want to use what I already have.

I am using the computer for my office (Web design & development) some photoshop editing possibly light video stuff. And over all general office computing.

I have this cpu selected:

New AMD Phenom II 1055T

And possibly this motherboard because it supports 6 cores out of the box:
ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

But I could be swayed from this if someone knows of a better solution that will allow me to use all 6 cores.

Just need suggestions for a video card. I would like dual dvi ports, and the possibility for "light" gaming no and then
but not often.


Thanks for any suggestions.
