    What AMD MoBo would you reccomend that is cheap (maincriteria) no need for inbuilt graphics and still is enough fast for most games?:D
    Alternatively-What chipset to look for that matches the above criteria? Please come up with some nice reccomendations.

    Cheap is not a word in the gaming motherboard industry.
    Either you want a cheap system to play solitaire or a nice system to play Crysis.
    Something in-between pehaps?
    But then, it would not be cheap....huh?
    The best thing to do is to see what others are using, then check pricing. Look in the signature for most of us.
    Do your homework and check reviews.
    It's a process to get a good machine up and running.
    Most games use a PCIe slot for graphics, so look for a mother board that has that slot, then look at reviews, several reviews, there are good motherboards out in the market, but you never know, you may get a bad one, just a chance to take if you are a builder.
    It's not something to do in a hurry, take your time and do the homework....
    Good Luck :)
