I'm building a gaming PC. after doing plenty of research I have concluded that an AMD FX-6300 is the best CPU for my build due to it's low price and it's ability to reach 5 GHz when overclocked. however i'm having a hard time with finding a motherboard compatible with AMD and this level of overclocking. most of the motherboards I've seen have seemed "OK" but this is my first time building a PC, an experts opinion is in my belief necessary.

I was able to easily hit 5Ghz with an FX6300 and an Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2.0.

Here is a link to a 3DMark Vantage run I did with my FX6300 @ 5Ghz - http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/4649609

I did this with just a CM Hyper 212 Evo in push/pull config.

I would go with the sabertooth, its a good priced mobo for the performance you can get out of it. It has a nice number of features and it is also build for stability and cooling(which you will need when OC'ing)

The Crosshair V overclocks like a beast, but i would spend more on other stuff like SSD of GFXcard
