This is the list of CPUs that your motherboard supports:

For a gaming PC, you'll want the fastest one, so that will be the FX-8370:

You'll need some DDR3 memory modules like this:

Then you'll need a graphics card, one that's matched performance-wise with the above CPU:

You'll need a power supply unit too:

And then you'll need some storage:

Use for the OS/boot drive, and then something like this to store everything else:

Note that all of these, bar the CPU, are just suggestions and I'm sure everyone would have their own choices.

All of this, of course, depends entirely on how large your budget is.
