David reporting in, I've decided I want to build my own system and want to begin with MB recommendations first. I am not a poweruser and not a "Gamer" I do want to watch bluray 1080p content on my system and I do a lot of spreadsheet work at home. This will be a home desktop system and I want the motherboard and cpu total cost to be less then $250.00. Here is what I would like to have in a MB
01 No liquid cooling 02 No raid need 03 At least 1 hdmi output and 1 usb 3.0 port 04 No multi-monitor needed 05 64 bit and be able to have at least 16 gb of DDR3 ram 06 I want the mb cpu combo to be able to play dvds without the need of a videocard 07 On board audio - Don't want a soundcard. 08 Would be nice if the combo was AMD!!
As you can tell I'm not a geek and some of the requirements may seem strange to you! Any help would be greatly appreciated - David
