To be honest I would just stay with your 1055T... Clock for clock, Thuban is faster than Bulldozer, and Vishera is only 5% - 10% faster than Bulldozer. So really you're not going to get a huge jump in CPU performance unless you heavily overclock the FX 8320/8350. At the same time upgrading to an AM3+ motherboard you still don't get PCI-E 3 :/ Upgrade the memory to 8GB and buy a nice solid state drive. Running a nice SSD on SATA2 ports looks bad on paper, but the performance will be great.

Unless you feel you're getting bottlenecked by the CPU I strongly recommend against upgrading platforms. Save the money for next gen AMD if you're sticking with them and just buy the RAM/SSD now which you can use in the later build.

I Say go big!

Get like 500GB~ worth of SSD('s) and shrink what you need for Windows, Programs, and Games and image it to the SSD.

Use your 640 for storing things. :]
