Earlier I posted a thread, but in the wrong section, so I'm going to re-post here with the current build I'm looking forward to. Please do share your opinions! (I'm mostly worried about the video card).
Asus M5A97 PRO, AMD 970, AM3+ (up to 140W), DDR3, 2xPCI-E (CF), DTS 7.1, Lan1000, 6xSATA RAID 6Gb/s 0,1,5, 10, 2xUSB3.0, ATX
You will find little use of the 8 cores in games, couple that with the rather poor single-core performance of the Bulldozer chips and you are looking at a CPU that isn't at all for gaming.
