Holy CRAP. Man, when I lost touch of the "new" stuff, like 30-50K was _really_ pushing it. That's incredible!

Since you already have Sabertooth 990FX the cheapest way is getting an FX 8320 CPU, also if you mainly fold I recommend Nvidia cards such as GTX 760.
Cool, thanks for the recommendation man. I'll probably end up with an Nvidia card because A) they fold better and B) I've usually always used them and am just more familiar with them, lol.

Yea, I need to start looking for some new water blocks (or seeing if I can use my old ones).
One the note of waterblocks, I figure my old Apogee CPU block probably doesn't have an AM3 plate for it huh? However, are there still mounting plates made for new(er) GPUS for teh MCW80 universal GPU waterblock? (I know these questions might be better served in the WC section, but I figured I'd ask here while it was on my mind.)
