Hello everyone, I'm presently in the process of upgrading my system. my present system consist of the following:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Radeon HD 5830 1GB
Asus M4A78T-E AM3
G.Skill ripjaw-1600 2X4GB
Corsair HX750W
WD Caviar 750GB HD
Plextor PX-850SA

I'm intending to purchase an Asus Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ mobo, and later on a Radeon HD 7850. However, I'm stuck on which CPU I should get. I've been looking on getting for now an FX-4100 or 8120. But, I'm been wondering if should just stay with the 965 and wait for the new future AMD cpu's. I'm really into gaming, surfing the net, and general computer useage. any advise is welcome.

The board is fine, of course, but I'd recommend staying with the 965 and waiting for Piledriver. There's no reason to "upgrade" to a BD CPU from a 965 BE for gaming.
