Bulldozer is being released (on paper) tomorrow.

You should wait for that and see, I believe they are releasing the 4cores aswell.

Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 and a Phenom II X4 965. Honestly I'd agree with waiting on the CPU purchase, though - Bulldozer won't be incredibly expensive, and the Phenom IIs are dated technology.

Not bad, but I'd stick with a Black Edition for $10 more. And Gigabyte, because I'm a fanboy.

That motherboard is hard to beat for the price, don't get me wrong.
