Hi guys, I have recently purchased a new AMD Athlon ll x3 455 3.3ghz processor for my computer. For I am on a budget at the moment, and came to the realization that my motherboard does not support this processor. Are there any reccomendations as to what kind of motherboard I should get? Preferrably under 100 that still has the essential, PCI, PCI-E, etc.

you will need to be sure. as it will mean the difference of buying new ram or not.

Yes it's ddr3. It does not have a graphics card yet. It will be turned into one for gaming, eventually when I have the funds.
