I am building a budget gaming computer and am purchasing AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU and am trying to find a motherboard that will be around 100-150$ and will support one Graphics card Radeon 5850, 4 Gib Ram (2x2). Thank you!

    This one would allow crossfire 5850's later on.

    If you don't need usb 3.0 or sata 6gb you could save some money by going with the very capable 7XX series motherboards.

    Yes my RAM is DDR3 1600 and thank you what exactly is the usb 3.0 and sata 6gb for? this is my first build ;)
  2. get an asus 785g tdv evoallows for good overclocking, and has a extra 4x pcie slot so you could stick in something like a 9600gt for physx with this guide http://forums.overclockersclub.com/?showtopic=174041
  3. heres a good one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131406&cm_re=asus_785g-_-13-131-406-_-Product
    only $79
    usb 3.0 and sata 6gps arent really worth upgrading to for a couple of years so look for a motherboard with those capabilities for you next build
