this is the config of my pc:

Corsair3 4gbDDR3 1333Mhz ram, AMD PHENOM II X2 555 3.2 Ghz Dual Core,
Radeon HD 6950 2GB DDR5 Graphics card, Cooler Master 600watt psu.

since i wanted a gaming computer so i have bought these parts but cant decide on the motherboard, as, initially i decided on buying asus motherboard but later changed plan, as i am hearing a lot of complaints about asus mobo.
so plz suggest me a good motherboard.
also do you think that my processor is good enough for gaming purpose? plus, is there any compatibility issue between my processor and the graphics card?

Just off the top of my head...

I would also affirm the following comment regarding bottle-necking due to the Phenom.

I believe the Sabertooth and crosshair V take the phenon, and that those models are made by manufacturers other than ASUS, but I am not sure what other system requirements you have in terms of expandability.

I would suggest upgrading to an i5 or i7 and then look at the gigabyte boards UD3 to UD5.

Sounds like we are having similar problems as I previously decided on an ASUS deluxe Gen 3 and then heard about ASUS RMA and mobo problems so.... I am currently in the same funk.

Everything I am seeing thus far in reply to my thread "best and worst motherboards," is pointing to ASUS or Gigabyte, however; I am also seeing comments on this forum regarding ASUS mobo problems.

Not to suggest you buy it but... I use New Egg to check specs. You can search by manufacturer, socket type, and cpu.

I know Intel makes a Sabertooth board but its kinda pricey.

Spoke myself into a couple circles on this one, I hoped it helped at least a little.
