Whats crazy is you spent 270$ for a AMD 2.6Ghz I think is what you got. when for under 250$ you could of bought any of Intels new processors like the i3-i5- or i7 serious I think the i7 is most expensive. I bough an i5-650 3.2Ghz Overclocked at 4.2Ghz for 170$ but if you did not take the time to research than I guess that is your deal. Your money man..And about the motherboard (MB) the MB is very easy to install. It comes with a instruction booklet just like the CPU. My first time ever installing a MB took me maybe 10-15 min. Well I wish the best of luck to ya man
Down below I attached a link for Intels CPU's hope it helps a bit in your journey to building a decent rig.
