Hi guys,

I'm a first-time system builder/upgrader and already own the following components. I was wondering if people could a) point out any potential conflicts with this build, and b) suggest a good mobo to go along with it. My aim is to use this computer for gaming, maybe some new strategy games like CIV 5 and some older ones like Empire: Total War.

I'm really looking forward to this, both to upgrade my computer, and as a learning experience, so thank you very much for your input.

I use the biostar A880G+ for around $60. It only has 2 ram slots, but manual settings for up to 1600 for the ram. It also has an hdmi port for blueray. You can spend about $40 more for a newer board for sata 6 and usb 3.0 support from asrock or biostar.
