  1. Best answer
    1. I'm not into MSI boards. I suggest getting Asrock/Asus, maybe a Asrock z77 Extreme 4.
    2. If your gonna OC, you'll definitely need a cooler, a hyper 212 EVO will do. But if you don't plan to OC yet, then buy it whenever you plan to OC.
    3. I think you still have room in your budget to upgrade your gpu, maybe to a 7950. I would suggest getting sapphire/asus. But personally I have a HIS 7950 boost, runs very cool, max 59c. So its really your brand preference. But Sapphire are one of the best amd brands so I suggest a sapphire 7950...
