Hi all,

I am in the process of building a desktop PC, which I intend to use for general purpose as well as occasional gaming (actually the only games I play are flight sims like il-2 sturmovik 1946 and would like to move on to cliffs of dover). I have decided to buy the RADEON HD 7850 2GB along with an AMD FX 6300. Which motherboard would you suggest along with these two? I 'm looking for something with a cost-benefit value, which would hopefully run CloD without problems. Any suggestions for the rest of the parts (memory, PSU, etc) would be welcome.

thanks

Motherboard won't really have any effect on performance at all.

I would recomend something like the

ASRock 970-PRO3 Motherboard

or

Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 Motherboard

Have you considered 990 motherboards, like MSI 990FXA-GD80 or GD65, Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3? I think they have better heatsinks, and better chipset for that new FX-6300 processor..
Some 990 motherboards:
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3
MSI 990FXA-GD80
MSI 990FXA-GD65
ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
Those motherboards are around ~$120 to $180, but you'll get better support, functions and no need to upgrade motherboard to upgrade to better AMD processors.
You can check prices at stores like: Newegg, Landmark, NCIX, and Tigerdirect.
