Pics! I just upgraded my old Phenom II rig to an 8350. Love it so far. Switched out the coolers on it and will try to overclock at some point. Using an Asus 990x board. Good luck with your build!

I've worked with the 990fxa-ud3 mobo before, quite a pleasant experience once you make sure the bios is updated rolleyes.gif.

I'd suggest either a Corsair or Seasonic PSU, but it'd just be from ownership experience, I don't actually know anything about them.

I've heard some good things about the Corsair HAF cases, worth checking out: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-Branding-_-na-_-na&AID=10440554&PID=4897915

Personally Would go with the ASUS motherboards, either the SABERTOOTH or the CROSSFIRE esp if your going to OC also if your gonna hit 5.0 ghz ~ it will all depend on the silicone of the chip... i hit a wall @ 4.8ghz sadly @ 1.5 ghz -.-;;

Corsair, cooler master, OCZ, and other high end high power PSU's are on sale on new egg.... http://www.newegg.com/Power-Supplies/Category/ID-32

good luck! I've never had issues with cooler master... I may try OCZ or corsair for my next build though smile.gif
