http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130648 - motherboard

PCI express ddr3 ram 2gig (x2)

radeon 6850 gpu

corsair 600w power supply

my tower is the one ive been using. this mobo is same size as my old mobo. so i assume its ok?

Not looking to upgrade for awhile..so yeah the mobo kinda suck. But will it run? please look thoroughly cause i dont think the cpu is refundable, only replaceable.
It would work, but not efficient.

If this is just for gaming, go with i5-3450, or i5-2300. Motherboard can be kept as it is.
That build should work just fine, although I am partial to Nvidia rather than Radeon.

My Build

Q8300 (overclocked to 3.0ghz)
Nvidia 550Ti
8Gb DDR3
1000Watt PSU

Can run this gam maxed out on a 47" HDTV running between 50-60fps.
