I recommend Asus motherboards and AMD parts. 

 

 

These are two very good Asus motherboards:

 

ASUS P6T7 WS Ultimate Gamer - 3-Way SLI & PhysX, SATA 6GB (Intel based)

ASUS Crosshair V Formula - 3-Way SLI/CrossFire, Thunderbolt, SATA 6GB (AMD based)

 

Both are higher in price but are worth it.

 

Use this thread to help:

I recommend AMD and Asus do to personal experience. 

 

Some good memory stick brands are Corsair, Kingston and GSkill 

 

If you want a great PC, it will be on the 1000-1500 range

 

Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula - 3-Way SLI/CrossFire, Thunderbolt, SATA 6GB

 

Video/Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 7970 - 3GB GDDR5 RAM on PCI Express 3.0

 

Processor: AMD FX-8150 - 8 cores at 3.6GHZ clock speed.

 

Memory:

Corsair Dominator DDR3

GSkill Trident DDR3

 

Use the thread I gave you, as there are more options on there

Yep really. Its really an annoyance more than anything.. taking it all apart to replace a 100$ part (i avoid more expensive mobos as they are pointless)

 

though the asuses i used to buy were in the 150 range... 2 out of 3 failed within 2 years. then i went giga and havent looked back. 2 of 2 abits died too.

 

oddly enough i have a 10 year old dell branded mobo that still works in server mode. alright enough nerd talk
