Hello everyone,

First time builder here and I was wondering if this would be a reliable motherboard for my first build.

Motherboard I am considering:


Other parts are the following:

Video card - EVGA GTX 560

RAM - G.Skill Rip-Jaw 1600 8 GB

Processor - AMD Athelon II x3 3.3ghz

Power Supply - Not decided yet, would like some recommendations! Will make a separate post for this later but feel free to give me some pointers on this.

Give me any and all advice on the motherboard I listed, other parts and how they work with that motherboard, or just any general tips on computer building.

Here's another ecs board:; use the serial number label on the side of the box for the rebate; you have to carefully peel it off slowly and print out the invoice from newegg. Here's an ecs am3+ board for about the same price with hdmi port: ($34.99 after rebate plus shipping at newegg; link broken); it's the best of the three boards.

Can an AM3+ board run an AM3 processor?

I thought it had to be AM3+ as well?
