I would like an AMD build. All i really need is a mobo cpu ram and cpu. I already have a GTX 650. So I want to either run that in SLI or get just a single card that will out perform them.

It depends on the psu you have, if you have a good one with 500-600W, the 7870 XT(it's basically a 7930) is a much better card than the 650 and offers two free games , the 650 doesn't have sli bridge, you can't sli the 650 gtx.

Here's the list with the amd cpu and gpu :
