Mobo for FX-6300 that works out of the box?

Buying the parts for my first ever DIY PC tomorrow, and the one thing I'm still unsure about is what mobo I should buy.

I'm getting an FX-6300 and plan on OC'ing it, but I also don't want to spend more than $75-90.

I've found several mobos that fit in this price range, but my real fear is that I will get one that wasn't manufactured late enough to register my CPU.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

    any mb which will work with a bulldozer will at least boot and work well enough with the 6300 to allow you to update the bios... probably.

    Generally the GA970-UD3 or the M5A97 R2.0 will work just fine.
  2. Very Very wrong, dont post advice on what is not true.

    Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard is the best motherboard with rev 2.0 and USB flash mode your be really good with this.
  3. IMO, the GA-970A-UD3 is the best MB. More USB ports and even has two firewire ports, one internal and one external. Costs slightly more than the Asus MB but you get what you pay for.
