Fill the form you can read in the sticky so we cna help. Also AMD is garbage nowadays any intel CPU at the same price tag out perform its AMD counterpart.

If its for gaming with an eveo 212 I guess that you want either an i5-2500k or an i5-3570k

They will fit.

My thoughts:

1) For gaming, Intel cpu chips currently are better at every price point than amd.
Read this: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...
Any Z77 based motherboard will do.

2) I would stick with known good quality psu's. Seasonic, XFX, Corsair, PC P&C, and Antec to name a few.

3) Do you really need a hard drive, at least to start with? A 120gb SSD will hold the OS and 6-8 games. You can always add a hard drive later if you need one to store large files, like video's.

4) My rule of thumb for a gaming pc is to spend twice your cpu budget on the graphics card.
The graphics card is the real engine of gaming. Read this article, and pick your price point:

5) I do like M-ATX smaller motherboards and cases. What case did you have in mind?

6) You will learn much if you download and read, cover to cover, the motherboard and case manuals.

-------good luck------------

Read this website for best gaming cpus for the money.
They update it once a month.
At that price I would recommend a 2 core/ 4 thread Intel i3 2125 = $120.
A 4 core i5 2300 starts at $160 is much much faster and a better deal than an i3 IMHO.
As for mb there are too many to chose from so stick with a socket 1155 board from
ASrock, Gigabyte or MSI.

I would try to get the Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid SSD 750 GB HD, it is about $200, nearly as fast as an SSD and much easier to deal with than managing 2 drives. It has a tiny SSD built into the HD that does a good job of remembering what you use most often. I put one in my girlfriend laptop (guinea pig) and it works great.

Although Radeon cards are cheaper, Nvidia has better drivers and support (= quality).
You get what you pay for.
I always am happiest with GeForce over the few Radeons I have tried.
The GTX460 is a good cheap card = $100, but I suggest the newer 560 at $150.
Do not go lower than the GeForce 450 or 550 = $120.
I use EVGA for the lifetime warranty, but I have never had one fail and I do overclock them.

Intel i5 is a good gamer for $125: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Read this: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gaming-cpu-cor...

For a motherboard, here is a ASrock which should do the job @$65. It includes 6gb sata which some cheaper units do not have:

But, really, any socket 1155 motherbard should be ok.
