Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128470

Ram - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231426

The 8gb ram above assumes 64bit Windows. If you have 32 bit, then this kit will be better. - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231425

Graphics card - depending on budget - Low - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625 - high - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130623

The lower end graphics card would be a better match for you CPU as the higher end card will over run it a bit. For the lower end card, you could also get away with a less powerful PSU. Something in the 80 plus 450 watt range with good amperage on the 12v rail. - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207018

For the higher end card you would need something more like this. - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013
