I still need a mother board yet but I havent the first clue on what is compatible

we can't see your shopping cart, you should post them one by one here


compatibility:
for the latest GPU: PCI-E 2 or 3 doesn't matter
RAM: DD3 (the latest)
HDD: SATA 2 or 3
CPU: socket type (ex: lga 1155 the most common at this moment)
and most importantly you have to know if your PSU can handle all of this: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
idk If I forgot something...
From experience I recommend Asus or Gigabyte, they're both great at making motherboards and I never had one that disappointed me.
you've got a case? I just bought this one I think it's great especially for its price and what it brings for that price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(remember to buy some fans to fill the empty fan slots in the case, if you decide to buy THIS case then buy some scythe 120mm fans or coolermaster sickleflows 120mm)
I wish I could help more but I'm not an expert I'm kinda noob at this, but I think that's basically all you need to know...

Hey, you can try this site http://pcpartpicker.com/. Pick the same components from newegg.com and look for them on there. Once your build is done click on the BBcode markup and copy then past here.

What type of games do you plan to run? I don't know how correct I am but I believe BF3 is the largest at the moment running Ultra settings and having good FPS.

Metro 2033 is the most demanding graphically.

cstiles96 - What components do you have already if any?

This is your build from the other topic you posted in minus your chose of MoBo because the site didn't have it. So I gave you a different one just as a reference.

Did a new edition of 2033 get released or is it still the most demanding new game? Thats like 3+ years old isn't it?

I would get this HDD instead of the SSD.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $59 for 750gb. Yes obviously slower, but 120gb will run out fast on a gaming machine with games. 120gb will only have 110ish after formatting, and probably around 90gb after win7 and all the typical programs one may install for a normal computer before games and game extras. It goes fast and if you are on a budget now, I doubt you will be getting another drive when you run out of space. On a budget, I would save the $30 for a GPU as that is the MOST important item on a gaming computer.
