Best Motherboard for AMD FX processor, mid-range price

My Dad needs to replace his motherboard. He currently has a Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P, which has begun to have problems with the USB 3.0 header on the board. (I'm beginning to understand that this is a common problem with this particular motherboard.)

The Processor he has is the AMD FX-6300.

I'm looking for recommendations for the best motherboard that is compatible with the FX processors. Price range: Nothing over $125 if it can be helped.

Thanks in advance! If anyone needs more information, let me know.
