Hi All,

Was thinking of building my first computer. After reading some reviews here I think I want to go with the AMD Phenom II x4 for a procesor and the NVidia GTX 460 as my Video Card, mostly gonna use the comp for playing games like SC2 and WOW.

I dont really know much about MB's I just know for this config I should use one with an AM3 socket but dont know anything else, was wondering if you guys could give me a few MBs that would work well with it please.

Also I know AMD works with ATI so am I better of getting intel CPU or an ATI VC instead of the combo I want or does it not make a diference.

Thanks in Advance

Check out the GA-870A-UD3 at the gigabyte site, this company has made big strides in the last couple of years,my present gigabyte mobo has never given me any trouble from day one, my UD5P just loves my Phenom X4 955, and even tho my current mobo is only dd2 and I an eyeballing the UD3, I hae me doots as to just when I will really upgrade...:)

The only problem is that most AMD boards are for crossfire. If that does not bother you, the board in the previous post will be just fine.
