Usually the latest are the finest but I would stay away from the FX 9xxx due to heat issues (very hot CPU) hence the FX 8xxx series is the wiser choice.

Don't go APU sockets as it's still subpar to CPU sockets

The FX 8350 and it's an AM3+ socket!They are 125W cpu's and are easier to cool,they are also a lot cheaper than the 9000's.

As noted above the 9000's run hot and are 220W cpu's,they require a good CLC solution like an H80i or a H100i style cooler.And a mobo capable of using them.

As mentioned above the FX8 (8320/8350) series is the latest design being "8-cores". Combined with an AM3+ socket and an 990 chipset you have a nice system.

I never (needed to) overclock (any GPU/CPU) and the FX got auto overclocking built in ... but this is off topic.

The Crosshair V formula-Z is Asus's top AMD board but I would have to say go with the Sabertooth too.
