I'm fixing to buy an AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6ghz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -

And I just dunno what Mobo to purchase with it... My current mobo will NOT support it. I was looking at an ASUS saber tooth - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -

But 180 is kind of high in my budget. I can do it, but I wouldn't know if it would really be worth it. I really like AMD, and ASUS...

but for gaming, go with a phenom if you must have amd, or go intel...

i3 2120, i5 2400, i5 2500k, or even the g850. all beat the fx4100

Almost certainly the ASRock Z68 Extreme3, if you do end up going Intel.
