So I recently got an AM3+ Mobo for cheap this week and was wondering what goes well with this Mobo?
I'm talking specifics like PSU, GPU, CPU, RAM. Since This is my first AMD build and I've built nothing but Intel beforehand. I'm just going AMD since my budget won't do for Intel and I use it mainly for video editing and rendering computer animations. And a bit of gaming here and there for some procrastination.

So can anyone point me to the a good or the product that is right for me?

P.S. I might also do some overclocking.

What do you think if I changed the FX 8320 to the FX8150, I just can't seem to get my hands on Vishera, plus I'd need to update the bios anyway so I'd consider that a potential, upgrade option a little later on the line. And can 500 watt PSU supply me with the power I need to overclock it?

The Vishera is much more power friendly and I would not buy first generation FX x1xx series. 500watts depends on how high you plan to overclock so 600watt would be safer specially considering the high power draw from the piledriver overclocked.

Don't know where you are at but you can get the 8150 at newegg with the water cooler for $190:

Which is pretty good since the cooler itself is about $100. Anyway its a pretty sweet deal.

I do still need to update the mobos BIOS. Which I can't do if I buy Vishera straight out,
and It is a sweet deal, now if only shops in asia did those kinds of things.
