AMD Bulldozer FX-8 Eight Core 8120@8150
Samsung S23A350H 23" Widescreen LED Monitor
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 AMD 990FX rev 1.1
Cooler Master HAF X-M Midi Tower Case

what is your budget, location, parts not required, and are you going to overclock this system? also, do you plan on doing SLI or crossfire.

fx is a terrible choice for a CPU given it performs worse than phenom iis. id build you a better rig

750w will do it. not too sure about the quality about that unit

as for my build, id say its superior in nearly every way.
