And I am going to be honest with you here, I have NO idea what motherboard to get. I don't know what is compatible with what or anything of that matter, so if you could please point me in the right direction or educate me a bit on what to get that would be great =).
P.S. The main game I play is Quake Live. I know this isn't a graphically intense game but since I play it competitively I want to get steady framerates on all maps.
Ok, so I think I've decided on a motherboard. I am going to use the one posted on the System Builder Marathon $650 budget gaming PC. I do, however, have one question though.
For my processor, it says the socket type is AM3, but the CPU is Phenom II x2, for the motherboard, it says it supports AM3 socket types, but I don't see the CPU type listing Phenom II x2, I see it says Phenom II x3 and Phenom II x4, Can someone help?
