  1. of those 560 is better
    your cpu will bottleneck a little with those cards, but you can try overclock
    your psu can handle any of them
  2. an hd 6870 will be more better option for a good gpu and its on par with gtx 560.:)

    say 100-150 buks
  8. http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M3NHDHDMI/#CPUS
    from above list your board can support all am3 cpu upto 125w
    best cpus are phenom 2 x4 980 in 4 core and 1100t in 6 core class. And are best cpus that amd have and are around of 200dollers

    But for 100-150 you can get 960t or 965 or 1055t
