Building my first computer and I need help picking a motherboard. I am intending to use it for both high end gaming and high-performance molecular dynamics simulation.
The Processor I want to use is a Phenom 9850 Black 2.5Ghz Quad-Core,
For a video card: EVGA GeForce GTX 260
I know that duel core processors may sometimes be better for gaming, but the simulation code I am working on is going to be optimized for 4 processing cores.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what kind of motherboard would work best? I want to try to keep the entire build to less than $1000.
