Best Gigabyte AM3+ (For FX 8350) motherboard at 100 dollars or less?

I need a Gigabyte motherboard that's 100 dollars or less that's comparable to the Z87X-UD3H (for intel cpu's) In terms of features.
Thanks.

I probably won't do crossfire, but I may.

Thanks for any help, I'm such a dummy when it comes to motherboards. >_<

Oh, and overclocking's important, because I will probably do it in the future.

    How am I supposed to update the bios without a CPU that can launch with the motherboard in the first place? Sorry, I'm a bit of a noob.
  4. oh i got your point now......you do not need to worry about compatibility.

    just pop in the fx8350,fire up ur machine and you are good to go.

    you can update the bios at a later time whenever you want

    good luck nd have fun :)

    I've looked it up and a lot of people seem to have problems booting up FX 8350's without a bios update, which I won't be able to do because I don't have an older Phenom CPU.

    just confirm the bios version with the seller and you are good

    Thanks, meanwhile are there also other boards that work out of the box without a need to update the bios at around the same price? (By Gigabyte)

    will work out of the box

    it is to be noted though that GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 (rev3) also works out of the box

    the ud3 is a far better overclocker

    rest of the things are pretty much trifles
