Contradicting statements there m8ty

Well first of all I have absolutely no idea why you bought a FX-55, then decided on a Gigabyte Mobo and bad PSU

If your prepared to spend that much on a processor, I would suggest upgrading the Mobo to at least a DFI Lanparty UT Ultra-D or if you want a more newbie friendly board, ASUS K8N-SLI Deluxe (sorry dont know the exact model) though to be honest, the DFI would be the only thing that does that monster justice.

Get an OCZ 520W Powerstream (its a DFI Street approved PSU).

Also you may as well get a 7800GT or x1900XT or something similar.

Hope that helps, if you give us a budget we can give you a more accurate spec.

Do you plan on staying with AMD or jumping to Intel (since you posted in the Intel forum)?

There's not a better Intel mobo on the market at the moment. The price tag is high, but you get what you pay for in this case.

People have been getting great OCs out of the 900 series (65 nm dual core CPUs). The 920s and 930s come with reasonable price tags, and should give you a good bang for your buck. Alternately the Cedar Mill cores (65 nm single core CPUs) have been shown to be pretty good overclockers.

I can't quote you prices in your part of the world, but I'm all for buying a lower price CPU and overclocking the snot out of it. The higher priced/clocked CPUs may achieve amazing results, but the additional performance over the lower priced ones isn't worth the cost in my mind (or rather, my budget ).
