WTB: AMD socket AM2+/AM3 CPU and PCIx video card

I'm running an older desktop with this Gigabyte AM2+/AM3 motherboard:

I currently have a an Athlon 64 X2 dual core (5000+, 2.6Ghz) and i'm using the onboard video (ATI Radeon™ HD 3200-based).

I'd like to upgrade, so i'm looking for:

1. A better (faster, more cores, etc.). Something like a quad core Phenom X4 or Phenom II X4? But still not too power hungry? (i.e. probably not one of the 125watt monsters)

2. and a PCIx video card - faster than my onboard, but importantly, it must be QUIET... no screaming fans... so either quiet fan or passive heatsink?

Let me know what you have and how much do you want for it. Thanks!
