Maybe I missed it...but I think you also need RAM and a PSU, also.

Your motherboard and CPU...should be thought of as a team, with the additional fact that many motherboards have options that have no interest at all to some users.

yes I do need ram and a psu. not really sure what to look for in a motherboard. I don't want to buy something just because it is on sale. I won't be overclocking or should say I don't think I will be.

For a PSU you will have to research the power needed for the components then IMO buy 100 watts extra so it does not work hard, gaming as we all know is demanding. You will need better than average ram, IMO Corsair has some of the best high end ram. Cooling will be an issue so also take that into consideration, I would research CPU and ram coolers to get the most out of your setup.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!

So essentially you need a new build? Not just mobo and the likes.

You need all this then?
Dvd drive
Hard Drive
PSU
CPU
GPU
Mobo
Case
Operating system?

AMD Phenom II X4 @ 3.2Ghz - $165
GIGABYTE GA-MA785GMT-UD2H - $84.99
XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 - $179.99
ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - $49.47

You can find the rest of the part your self
Corsair is a good brand for both RAM and PSU
for psu i would consider buying a 700Watt PSU

Do you need lightscrbie support? You're missing a GPU in that setup too. What about this?

The GrimReaper's build above is good, though if you plan on using Crossfire and want the best performance with such a setup, a 790FX board is suggested.

okay thinking I might put a little more money in and see if I can't get a better pc. Will these work together?

Motherboard


video card


also if I get this what kind of monitor should I look for to fully take advantage.

I wouldn't go for an open box motherboard since you don't get anything other than the board itself. Here's the non-open box version: MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard. Also, if you can afford a Radeon 5770, that would be the way to go over the 5750.
