Current setup ready for new build:

FX-6300
Rosewill Thor-V2 (has front panel USB 3.0)
Rosewill 630W PSU
16 GB G.Skill Ripjaws
Radeon HD 6850

I need a new motherboard, and it's a subject I'm not up-to-date on. I am looking for USB 3.0 support, and just something that will work with the parts I have listed. No budget per say, but anything under 140 would be preferable.

Thank you in advance.

You need a motherboard with a 970 , 990X or 990 FX chipset for best compatibility and future upgrades

The 970 can only run a single graphics card , the 990x can run two but they share the connection [ intel always does this ] , and the 990FX has the best features
The Gigabyte UD3 is a good board and a very decent price
