Building new comp?

got to start on the motherboard

dual, quad?

what do I do?

Ill spend 300 on the motherboard and go from there

match up the socket of the motherboard and CPU, and make sure your RAM (Memory) is supported.

AMD Phenom 9600…

what are you gonna do with it? do you game? if you asking for help building one, then why pay $300 for a mobo? you can spend like $150 and be good.  i only spent $90 on mine and it’s been rocking all my games and programs with no problems for over a year
