AMD FX-6300
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 (might change it for GA-990XA-UD3 if I squeeze out some more money, will see)
Sapphire Radeon 7770 GHz Edition
DDR3 2x4GB 1600MHz Kingston HyperX CL9 (or should I go with 1866?)

A good config.
And, For OC'ing both the boards you have listed have very little difference.

If there won't be any significant boost in performance (speaking for OCing), I will probably get that 970A. But there's a chance maybe to get some Radeon 7790. If not, it will probably stay as I wrote in that post.

Do you think that I would gain more in performance (speaking of graphics) if I change 7770 for 7790?

The 7790 does seem to be considerably better than the 7770. I don't know the real world framerate stability differences between the two though.

if you could squeeze the dough out get the 7850 instead...its more powerful then both of those cards.....if you don't need crossfire or sli capability then a m5a97 r2.0 or a 970a-ud3 would be a great choice for a motherboard. if you want to have some sort of future proof in that if you ever go crazy with a truly highend graphics processor and eventually a powerhungry 8xxx chip you will probably want a 650 watt psu. coolermaster has a silent pro m2 620 watt unit...don't know if its available in Serbia. the specs look more then sufficient to power your rig. http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6804
a single +12 volt rail at 50 amps and I personally think the silent pro series is great. got a first gen silent pro m 850 in my sig rig and its seen an overclocked x6 1090t and twin gtx 570s in sli with no hiccup....plus eventually switched to an fx 8350 with those same cards without an issue.

I was thinking to start getting the components already this week, but I won't rush with this. Probably I will wait and try to collect more money and see if I can get 7850, the difference in price between my initial choice (7770) and 7850 is ~40$ if I am not wrong, so I will see if I can get that money. I am already far over the budget, but let's be patient (!) and see if I can go for that. Speaking of mobo, 970a-ud3 will be probably my final pick now, because if I already go for better graphics, I will have to cut from somewhere. But anyway, if things are good, I might change it for some 990, but for now it doesn't seem possible.

The PSU you mention is available here, what a surprise! And the price for it is $115, what's really expensive - maybe not that much expensive comparing with the funds I have.
