Well good CPU, good for mid-high end gaming.
you should get a 990fx or 990f series motherboard
uh check out the sticky post in the forum > PSUs > its a guide on how to choose what you need etc, very helpful.
Cavier blue hdds are nice, black are better but cost most. and sata 3 aka sata 6gbs is pretty much the same as sata 2 3gbs
antec makes really great cases, you should also check out the cooler master haf 912 mid tower case, 2 front fans, 2 top fans, ( both 120mmx2 or 140mm x2 one top one front i believe. and one side fan plus rear fan. has cable managment. and no side windows.
hope this helps yah.

Thanks for the tips I replaced my Asrock 970 Extreme4 with a SABERTOOTH 990FX , but I'm not sure if my psu can handle it :(

I would get a i3 sandy bridge over any of AMD's FX series.

If you want to OC then go for a 2500k.
