We know you have asked this question before but it is not possible to answer. I think AMD make the best motherboards but Intel make the best CPU's so we have an immediate incompatibility issue. You need to give us a chance by at least picking a motherboard , or CPU, to build a system around.

Also what do you want to do with the PC, you mention gaming, but what sort. If internet based you will want better Ethernet capability and so the questions go on.

what's your budget?

I googled the motherboard and found this bundle - click here Looks good. There is also the option to purchase RAM from this site and upgrade cooler. I would always recomend buying Motherboard, RAM and CPU from the same supplier. Then you won't get passed around if there are any compatability issues.

Try doing some research for yourself, instead of expecting others to keep doing it for you.

Assuming that you didn't get the answers that you were after.

Why ask the question if you already knew the answer?

As FB asked, what's your budget and what are you planning to do with it.

There is no single "best". A monitor that is ideal for a gamer may be totally unsuitable for a photographer. And when it comes to Graphics Cards, the games that you play will give you a guidance as to what you might buy. Of course, if you are making movies, the optimal setup will be different again.
