while i have pondered on my next build.....I am currently looking at a AMD 1055t with an ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i had previously set it up for a photoshop machine.... but .... diablo3 !!! so ...now I ask ... will it be any good for gaming.... CPU/MoBo??

CPU for both PS/Gaming is fine and i would hit an aftermarket HSF and clock away :p  That said -1 for ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3: $150 for a 8/8 890GX is daylight robbery so no CF/SLI i hit one of thos Asus/MSI/Giga 870s If u actually plan to either stay on IGP for a wee bit (no $$ for discrete) or have IGP as back up/redundancy have a look at the Gigabyte 880G ATX model...or Asrock 880G Extreme3 Its tri-CF capable even
