Okay, so I am having trouble picking a motherboard. This is my first time ever building a computer so I want to get it right. Here is a quick list of for sure specs.

Processor. AMD Fx-8150 (8 x 3.60 ghz)
Video Card. Nvidia Gtx 690

I need a motherboard to utilize those the most. I would also like the motherboard to support front panel ubs3.0. anyy suggestions?

I'm also trying to choose a mobo. It's the hardest part for me to pick.
You have to figure out what your really going to need and use.
Are you going to OverClock? Do you need a fancy Mobo with alot of options?

I am looking for just a nice standard budget board for around $150.
Set your limit on what you wanna pay, I am not to focused on AMD boards.
I have looked at that CPU before and compared it to a bit older i5-2500k (k) meaning overclockable.
This is a great site for comparing products!
AMD FX-8150 vs i5-2500k
I have choosen the i5-3570k Ivy for just a bit more money.

Post a link to the GTX 690 u want, are they the $1000 GPU's? If so that's a big waste of money.

What are you building this computer for? Making Hollywood Movies?
If this is your 1st time building a computer you don't need a $1000 video card.
I have made the mistake in the past building a gaming pc for $2100. When I could have spent $600 snf been just as happy! :D
