    MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3: $145 before $20 rebate

    or the Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3

    The XFX Core Edition PRO650W will save yah $20 ... and you should 'bite the bullet' and go ahead and snag something like the OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD for $85 after rebate.

    Excessive bumping is frowned upon around here.

    There's no reason to go AMD right now when the lowest end Intel boards run circles around them. That case isn't really a good choice and stay away from the Corsair GS series. They make good PSUs most of the time but definitely not the GS series.

    For $820 this would be a better suggestion:
