If you want an update to the Gigabyte mobo you already had selected, and not go for a Sabertooth, the GA-990FXA-UD3 is a good fit.

I would get the 8320 and oc to 8350 speeds and get a refurb h100 to cool it.

you save $50 on the processor, then lose it again on the bigger cooler. Basically it's a wash. If you want to spend a bit more cash, a V6 cooler for another $20-30 will give more overclock room on the fx8350
