I'm planning on building a computer using an amd phenom ii x4 955 or 965 as they're fairly cheap. I have no intention of overclocking. The computer is for light gaming/general purpose use. Not looking to spend a lot if I can help it, so what would be a good motherboard based on what I need it for?

You actually don't need a Phenom II for light gaming and other uses.. If you want to spend that much on a CPU then the Phenom II X6 will serve you better.. Otherwise an Athlon II X4 will be plenty.. For the motherboard, the MSI 870A-G54 will be good..

Ya, I wasn't 100% sure on the cpu. Only thing I really play right now is aion, but I still want games to look good when I do play them. Thanks for the suggestion.
