AMD or Intel? Which socket type? 2 RAM slots or 4? ATX or mATX? You need to be more specific.

Well For starters an Intel with at least 4 ram slots if possible, ATX would work just fine and if possible a quad core processor......

Start over.
At first it sounded like you were upgrading and were planning to use existing CPU, memory and other components, so we asked you for details and clarification. Now it sounds like either you are doing a more major upgrade or are doing a new build. PLEASE clarify and set the parameters including any hardware you plan on reusing, your use of the machine, if you plan on overclocking, and your price range for the motherboard and/or the complete project.

For example, below are a great combination but I do not know if it will be good for you, in your price range, etc.

Or maybe:

OR just supply more details for a more specific response for your needs.

Well i check the links that you posted thanks for that...So to be honest this is my first time building a PC from scratch, i know enough to get by to fix a few problems on the PC i currently have and I've had it for quite a while(4 years plus). I just decided i needed a change and basically wanted to switch to a ddr3 board. I'm not a mega PC gamer but i do play games some times so i would like to keep that in mind for the new make over and I'm planning on doing Graphic Designing as a side job, I would also like to keep that in mind too...hope this helps...

The first set of links I listed is good for moderate gaming, Photoshop, Autocad, Overclocking, and more. If the price range is a bit high, you can go down a bit on most, but keep the memory, stay close on the graphics card ('450' or '550' card), at least an i3 processor, and a few steps down on the motherboard. If you have the funds, add a 120GB SSD drive for OS and a large hard drive for files. If you plan on running Photoshop quite a bit get a smaller 60GB SSD drive for a scratch disk (overflow for your memory) and consider even more memory.
