    PC Upgrading - Motherboard?

    Hey guys. I am collecting money to buy myself new PC parts. I have already picked my GPU, CPU, RAM and Power Supply but I am no good with motherboards and don't know which one to choose for it to be good and cheap at the same time.

    My Specs ATM:

    GPU: Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR3
    CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 645 3.1 GHz
    RAM: 4GB 10600 CL9 (if that tells you anything)
    Power Supply: 450W

    I chose:

    GPU: Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5
    CPU: AMD FD8350 FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core
    RAM: Not sure what to choose. Help?
    Power Supply: Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS (CX600)

    I would like to get your opinions about the "I chose" build, what type of ram should I get to match the rest, what type of mobo would I need for all of that, is there anything that I could get for a better price/same price better performance? Im not great with all of that. Thank you

    If you get a shitty mobo it will bottleneck your build.

    Is this the cheapest it can get? I don't need some ultra gaming build from NASA. I just want to be able to run games like Battlefield 4 or Planetside 2 on High or Medium with good FPS.

    It's possible that mobo bottlenecks CPU/GPU.(Not a real botlnecek tho)
    CPU->restricted OC ability because of "bad" VRM desing/fewer pover phrase desing
    GPU->if you place GPU in a "slower" PCI slot, mobo can bottleneck it
