Motherboard help!!!

ok im helping a friend of mine with the purchase of a new computer. i told him that the only way to go is to have one built, so im building it. I selected a pretty good motherboard, but i cant figure out if it already has a processor on it or not. their website is confusing as hell....the worst part is that the order has already been placed.

that is the link to the motherboard...any help would be great

Looks like the one for $159.99 -10.00 discount is only the motherboard / GPU

You can get the combo with the CPU for 338.99 - 10.00 discount in the lower left corner.

If the card is seated right, sounds like it may be bad. Got another computer you can try it in? Can you take a picture of the setup and post or send to me?

ok im guessing that since the problem isnt with the motherboard and the video card, the only other thing it can be is the cpu. i tried to take pics with my phone but the files are too big. the problem im thinking is that the bottom of the cpu and the place where it connects to the motherboard just dont look right. newegg is telling me that i have to send both motherboards back and find a board that is compatible with my cpu, since the cpu isnt returnable. the problem im running into is i have no clue if it going to be compatible. im posting a link to the cpu if you guys would be so kind as to help me out.
