Hi,I'm kinda new to the forums and I'm looking for your help.I am in the process of building a new pc and have hit a wall.I have a new in the box Amd 955be that I bought back in 2011 for a build but never used it.I have been buying parts this year and don't know if I should keep and overclock it or go for the 8350 fx.The parts I have are

GB 990fxa-ud3. Motherboard
Sappire 7950 hd 3gb video card
Gskill ripjaws series 8gb ddr3 1600
Xfx xxx 650w psu
Rosewill challenger case

I could use some advice I on sdd
Should I go with the kingston hyper x 3k or the ozc vertex 4 both 128gb?

Do I keep the 955 and overclock it and wait for steamroller or go for the 8350?
I would also like advice on water cooling I have a budget of 150$

I would love your opions as to whether or not this will be a good online gaming rig.

Thanks for any tips and advice.
Yes I could have gone intel but I didnt :kaola:

If i overclock the 955 will it avoid being a bottleneck for the 7950? with the h80i what kind of overclock could i achieve?

would the h100i be better than the h80i? i found it for only 6 dollar more than the h80.and the 955 can really perform well enough for the 7950?
