Motherboard/Processor Combo

Guys i recently put a post up of what my current motherboard and processor is, and frankly sorry for the english but its shit, lol, i have around 180 to buy a decent gaming combo, and i aint that familiar with computing sites etc, was wondering if anybody would help me with a decent combo just mainly used for gaming?. Also i have had a look on but this is going to sound real stupid but buying parts from america, will they work with my stuff that ive bought in the uk!?. lol i was looking at this, is this any good?! - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Cheers guys!

I have built a lot of AMD & Gigabyte combos So, yes this is a decent combo price for the newer FX CPU & the UltraDurable MB. Do you have the correct memory to go with this ? What graphics card are you going to use with it ?

I also believe you will find that Newegg does not ship to the UK, and I'm sure you wouldn't want to pay the shipping if they did. You will need to find a good site in the UK, like Amazon UK. It's a good idea to do your research on Newegg, they are a great review site. They have many customers and a lot of user reviews. You can learn a lot by reading user reviews.
