As with most AM3 socket motherboards, the GA-78lMT motherboard from Gigabyte allows you to build a gaming rig without having to invest a lot of money in newer hardware. With an SSD in your build, you could consider a build with an AM3 board like this from Gigabyte, with a AMD FX processor. You can consider the FX 6350 or the 8000 series FX CPUs like the 8350. The 6350 may be outdated technology now, but it still provides six cores and is still a powerhouse not to be trifled with. This board provides both onboard video and audio as well, so if you aren’t considering a gaming build and just want something simple, you could consider buying this system and just running output from the onboard video.
