hi i have been looking to build my own pc, im pretty sure im getting an AMD FX-6300 but i don't know what motherboards will support it.
i was looking at some gigabyte ones but i cant tell if the fsb/ht will work for what i Want the processor to do.(overclocking it to about 4.5ghz)

edit:I think I have it mainly my question now is will this (GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard) motherboard with a 2200fsb work with the fx6300 overclocked to 4.5

Yes it will work, but -unless you're bound to the μATX format- I would not recommend it.
For better support of the FX-6300 I'd go for a 970, 990X or 990FX chipset. Gigabyte has a very good budget board in the GA-990FXA-UD3.
