a sandy bridge system will be a better banger, but if youre dead set on an amd build...right now?
just like on the amd be,up the multi for some fun.

ok, 880/890 will do nicely, if you dont want to run crossfire over 16x slots. giga,asus. ok on the ram.s

for single card a 500 and up psu. corsair,seasonic..antec..:)

look at the haf 912, dead cheap. super cheap. pretty cool.

I am also slowly working on purchasing components for a new build. Way its been going, the parts I've purchased so far will be "antiques" by the time I get it all purchased. But a nutty fellow like me who is running FSX etc on this current old build will still be tickled by the time I get done.
If anyone remembers one of my fav all-time singers Johnny Cash (yep, I'm "aged")- "Cadillac: One piece at a Time....!"

So far I've purchased:
mobo:Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5, cpu: AMD Phenom x2 555 BE Callisto, cpu cooler: Zaward Vapor 120.

Next to purchase will be ram (1866 or is it 1066?), then psu (likely 700-750w), graphics card (base idea is 1g 256bit mem).

On a retired military pension.
