Hey, help a new builder out. This is my first build so try your best to be patient :)  OK, so, I'd like to play Battlefield 3 on Ultra res and I have a powerful enough processor for it already, AMD FX-6100, now I'm in a rut and have been looking for a month to find an AMD motherboard for 100-150 but I haven't found anything. :(  Also I'd need to find a good enough video card to run battlefield and all that for about 100-130. Help me out guys!!! :D

I'd also like 4 slots for RAM and 2 x16 and 2 PCI Expresses.

you don't need to spend a ton on a motherboard. You can buy a "good enough" board for under $100. I have no shame in $59 motherboards. Most of them are good at this point in time. The heart of the system will be the processor, which you already have, and the video card. Spending less on a board gives you more room for a better card. I also wouldn't be dumping money in all that ram. 4 would be sufficient and some people run 8.

Is there any good motherboards out there for the $60-90 price range? Or what's the best for around that?

I'm building a computer, I want to get a 64 bit OS, my friend up in the replies gave me the card thats fine for me, the board is yet to be named, I'm also looking for a 18-22in. monitor, my budget is around 600-700$ overall, all I have currently is my case and PSU. My budget for the motherboard is 65-75 USD.

This is why helping people is so difficult here. THere is a form you can fill out with all the info youd need to give us, why didnt you fill it out? I believe its at the top of the forums page. THis back and forth is confusing and wasting time.

Yeah you won't be able to run ultra on that computer even with a nice graphics card since that processor is slower than an overclocked Q2Q. You would need at least an i5 to play the game in ultra detail. With your setup i would say high or very high at the most with most of the view distance disabled.
