Is this for a desktop system? If so your choice of motherboard and proc
rev is overpriced and will under perform for the money. A higher
frequency dual core CPU will give better desktop performance than a
lower frequency quad core CPU. The only difference between a
"workstation class" board and a "desktop class" board is cost and
"guaranteed compatibility" with a select set of after market components.
Given the maturity of the parts in the market today, I would not pay
extra money for a "workstation" board.
If you want to stick with AMD, I recommend the following:
AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache
6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor
Kingston HyperX 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
