I need a new Motherboard for around £30-60 ($45-90), the problem is it needs to be: mATX AM3+ and have a pcie 3.0 I do not have time to search the internet for the right MB for me so can you please offer me some good Motherboards to buy?

Ps. the reason I need a new motherboard is because I bought a AMD Fx 6300 and my motherboard does not support it as the wattage on the MB is too low

Edit: I got the CPU wrong.... I am such an idiot

Funny thing, AMD was the first to release a PCIe 3.0 graphics card (the HD7000 series) but does not feature PCIe 3.0 slots on it's motherboards - kinda strange don't ya think? But here's the truth of the matter, no current graphics card can saturate the bandwidth of PCIe 2.0 let alone come near needing 3.0
But you do need a new mobo then - any other specs you want?

It seem is will probably end up just going with a Pcie 2.0 then... All I really need is for it to support a FX 6300 then and for it to be mATX and within my price range, Oh and support a EVGA GTX 650Ti SSC
