Best Am3+ motherboard

I am building a pc and i am going to use an amd 6300 (if you have any different cpu suggetions please let me know). the budget for the build is $700. What im interested in the motherboard is PCI-E 3.0 (2.0 is just fine), usb 3.0, sata 6gb/s, durability, and overclocking ability, and sli and/or crossfire support.

My pc build will include:
graphics: amd radeon 7870
storage: 1tb hd
8gb ram
case: nzxt source 210
powersupply: corsair 500watt builder series
cpu: amd 6300(i am open to any other cpu suggestions)

Please let me know and Thank you for helping me if you can.

  2. Anything with the AMD 990FX Chipset is what's considered the "Best" am3+ board. They range in prices as low as 104 if you're lookin to save the money.

  3. One of the best and reasonable is the Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 at the Egg for about $143

  5. If you have a decent SoundBlaster soundcard, DON'T BUY an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard.
    They are not compatible.
    I found that out to my cost. Plus, it's very difficult to get the on-board sound to work, no matter how many times you run the set-up.
