  1. I am currently building a computer for personal(gaming/school) use. i found an amd athlon 64 X2 chip for $120 on newegg. the lowest ive found out of any dual core chip.
    i need a mobo that will work good with it.

    it has to have
    3 sata 3.0gb/ ports
    atx
    with at least 1(not planning on SLI ing this rig but its a possibility) pcie 2.0 16x
    3 pci ports.
    and an AM2 cpu socket

    i myself have no idea on what to look for because i have never bought a mobo before so if anyone can help me it would be much appreciated.

    Thx
