Never mind. I don't like Bulldozer because it sucks. Just get any 500W PSU (500W of efficiency ) and an Am3+ mobo plus 8Gb DDR3 RAM. What kind of RAM are you using ?

I recommend getting the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard it is the one I have and has a 5 year warranty with military class components, and it was the only one that supported the new FX 8350 without a BIOS update.
