I'm stuck deciding what to upgrade next on my build. I have an Phenom II x4, 880G-E45 motherboard, Cooler Master v6 GT cpu cooler, and a crappy logitech keyboard that all have to go and for now I only have the funds to upgrade one thing. I'd like to upgrade to a 990fx board, an fx cpu, liquid cooling (sealed or custom), and a Vengeance K90 keyboard. I can't decide what to do so I've chosen to ask my fellow pc enthusiasts what you would do in my situation. Any feedback or recommendations are greatly appreciated! ;)

Maybe you can get a good motherboard/Cpu bundle from newegg. If you want to stick with the Phenom processor, I'd go with the motherboard.

Asus Sabertooth is a great board, AM3+ socket so if AMD gets their stuff together with their FX line that gives you the option. 990FX chipset also gives you SATA III support. As it is right now, you're better off sticking with your Phenom II for the CPU. Wait for a stepping revision before going with an FX. The recent Bulldozer releases, FX-4170 and 6200 were not stepping revisions.
