No idea what your budget is.
If your planning on building a mid-range gaming machine you might be better served to build it around an intel I5 2000 series.
The 9650 is way down on the perf charts.
I am thinking of ordering a AMD Phenom 9650 2.3GHz Socket AM2+ 95W
Quad-Core Processor Model HD9650WCGHBOX. Two questions, is this CPU a
good one for gaming and what would be a good motherboard under 125$ that
would work with this CPU?
