First time builder here. Before I open up the boxes this weekend, was I wrong to listen to advice at the store that the Asus M5A88-V EVO motherboard would be a good choice for the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor?

I am *not* planning on overclocking, and if it matters the other components I'll be using are Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz and Antec 650 Watt Earth Watts in a Corsair Carbide Series 400R Case.

I realize there are seldom guarantees on this kind of thing, I just want to double check the salesman's advice, plus any feedback and advice specific to these components would be welcome for this PC build noob. Thanks!

Sure, why not? It can even support Bulldozer.

I had done a Google search for the motherboard and processor and didn't get that hit, but I guess this shows my noob status! I should have just gone straight to the Asus site and looked for a compatibility chart!

Thanks acerace!
