My System Specs

Default

skip the X4 go to X6. You can also go with the 1090 not necessary to go with the 1100, you save some money and it is a well known fact that lower clocked chips overclock better, you would hit 4GHz with the stock cooler with no issues probably. If you want to change for Bulldozer later, yes you would need AM3+. There are boards even under 100$. the Asrock 880G Pro 3 is 99$ on newegg.ca, has integrated graphics and 2 additional pcie x16 slots so should be fine. Not to mention very handy clear CMOS button on the backplate!
