Is this good (are you only looking for a motherboard or a motherboard and GPU combo?)

im Looking for mainly a motherboard, if for some reason my GTS 250 wont be compatible i will buy a new one, but thank you for the suggestion that one looks like everything i need, but my last board i bought was a gigabyte 880gm-usb3 and it was defective out of the box so i will never buy another gigabyte product.

every brand will have the odd DOA. The brand I use most is ASRock, really like them for there reliability and low power usage modes even though they don't overclock to well.

i have heard ASUS is not a bad company, but would the AM3+ matter if my CPU is only AM3? Thank you again for your help.

No, it just means it's AMD FX compatible for future upgrades :)
