    No. The Motherboard is the main housing print for the rest of the computers components. The GPU is your Graphics Card. The CPU is the "brain" of the computer that does all of the calculations. Etc.

    Is this not like the third thread you have made about it? There is a sticky that has a list of builds you can use for price tiers.

    And again, no its not the same. The MB is the large board that you plug everything in to. Socket usually refers to the socket type of your CPU, or processor. AM3 is the socket type for you selected CPU. Other popular ones are AM2+, the older AM2's, and intel's LGA series of numbers like 1115. Just make sure that your socket for your CPU match the socket on your MB. (ie dont buy an intel chip with a LGA 1115 and buy a AM3 motherboard)

    And if you wanna get technical, the GPU is not your graphics card, but rather the chip on your graphics card that essentially acts as a second CPU. GPU's have different structures that allow them to do graphical calculations much more efficiently than a CPU would. The graphics card itself is the board, the GPU, the caps, and usually a heatsink.
