More about first attempt
  1. Mobo is a little weak with no SATA III/USB 3 support.
  2. id get this mobo instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280 and itd allow you to upgrade to bd if you really want in the future also if piledrive if it stays on am3+. also a better psu would be better id recommend : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016
    if you dont like the color have no fear.: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093

    both trusty brands and the power is enough to power up to a 6950 i believe.
  3. Here is a nice PSU.
    OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply
    High quality, plus, it's black so it will match your case color. The PSU traimaiv recommended is also fine if you can't spare a measly $5. The Mobos he recommended are also very nice, I have no other suggestion, as the last AMD board I bought was AM2. Ahh, the good ole' Athlon 64 days. Also, I'm sure someone will recommend some other parts. Just look at the big picture and decide what's best for you.
