I need a good motherboard that will support my following specs. I did have a previous post about graphics cards, but i read the reviews on Newegg that a lot of people have been having problems with my motherboard. Also, it seems to be more than it should be. MY motherboard is the ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard. I would prefer it to have 16gb of ram max, have about the same specs, the motherboard to be compatible with phenom II x2 x3 and x4, if this is not possible just x3 and x4, and hopefully be a little cheaper(its okay if its not) :]. Tanks.

I presume you've factored in a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 if you want 16Gb of memory in it.
May I ask please why you want that amount of memory in the computer?

i want that amount of memory because in the future 8gb or more may be required for games and i am planning to upgrade my computer, not buy another one. :]

i found a few motherboards and can you tell me which is the best or if you have a better one or if mine is the best.
ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Thanks

That power supply that you pick Corsair vx450 will be more than enough.At full load your comp might use around 350W-380W the most and with Corsair it will do great not to mention that Corsair vx450 is able to work on 100W more (550W) with no problem.Or You can go with this Antec same PSU as vx450 only difference it that vx450 has little better electric capacitors that's all.Overall which ever of this two you choose you can't go wrong.
