Windows 7: A Rebuild Gone Bad

I've given up on the current set-up I have, whether the motherboard or CPU are at fault. I was glad I had gotten everything back together since i had been prolonging it since September. I am now working part time so i was planning on saving my money but it looks like that will not be happening. I am planning on getting a new motherboard, CPU, and Ram. I am following this guide exactly, anyone have any other suggestions?

PC Buyers Guide Winter 2010
What I Recommend Exactly, Far as Motherboard CPU and Memory.

If your on somewhat of a small budget stay away from Intel. If your not By All Means get a Sandy Bridge CPU.
Processor: Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX
Motherboard: Newegg.com - MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Memory: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Processor is a Great Gaming/General use Processor with the potential to overclock to 4.0ghz on Air. If your going for more of a editing type computer build you should go with a Six Core 1090T or something along those lines.

Motherboard is the most expensive as it should be, It gives you much more potential for the future, I personally have the 790FX GD70 And love it. But the new 890FX has USB 3.0 and 6.0gbs Sata Ports instead of 3.0.

Memory is at a great price and of Excellent Quality, Whichever board you do get MAKE SURE you check the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for the recommended Memory. - Tony

Guru3d Spring Buyers Guide?

Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Rant: (Optional Info)
I bought new parts to rebuild my pc during September, I put it all together and it worked for a few minutes till I shut it off. The next day I tried to start it up and it worked for 30 seconds before it crashed at the loading screen. In an old thread it was narrowed down to either the Mobo or GPU. I worked for days trying to figure out what it was and if I could fix it to no avail. Still don't know which it is but the mobo constantly had an error msg during post. I only upgraded certain components till I had the money and time to upgrade the CPU, Mobo, and Ram (Which has been the past few months). The only thing I can think of which might have gone wrong was the screwing down of the cpu cooler, which might of been too tight (I don't think so though) besides that I do not know.

Old Thread:
https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-gone-bad.html

Dilemma:
I've been waiting for the Spring Buyers guide from Guru3d to buy the new components I need but it has not been posted, will it be?

I would like to get the build done since it has been 6 months since I started.

What would you guys suggest for a CPU, RAM, and Mobo? Normally I look toward the higher Mid-end range.

I've been tied up in hospitals and school work so I have no idea what has come out since. I've looked around but I always find guidance to be helpful.

Info is much appreciated, I've had a GTX 480 sitting around unused for 6 months

Thanks!
