Picking a mobo for first build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I've been lurking on overclock and tom's the last couple of weeks trying to figure out a proper way to spend the money I saved up over the winter.
I've been trying to read through threads but theres always a certain point where everything just starts going over my head.

As for the build I'm going for gaming at around 1000 bucks but not really looking to mess around with overclocking until I've had more experience with hardware and cooling.

So far I'm thinking of the Phenom 965 along with the MSI N460GTX Hawk. I've read good things about the MSI 790FX-GD70 but after closer inspection they were all about two years old. But at the same time I'm not sure if I'll need a 890 model. Guidance would be humbly appreciated!

get the 890 series chipset, its far better. but talking amd, you might be better waiting until bulldozer is out since thats going to bring a new socket,
