Thread Starter 
Well My Computer Died Last Night and instead of fixing it I know it was time to upgrade. so I know nothing about AMD because ive been with Intel .

I found some parts last night witch are:
AMD PHENOM II X4 Quad Core 955 Black Edition

ASRock 970 Extreme4 AM3+ MB, AMD 970 + AMD SB950, 4x DDR3, 7.1CH Audio, GbLAN, PCI-Ex16, CrossFireX

Some things you Have to keep In mind are:
Im on a budget keep it under $300 (Australia)
And I game ALLOT!!! and do allot of video editing

So any thoughts?

PCCG is great, but MSY is significantly cheaper.

OP, I would strongly suggest waiting till next week.. Apparently Bulldozer will be out then, and for something like a 4-core BD I don't think it will be much more than a 955BE.
