Best AMD 970 am3+ chipset board for under $90

Hi, I am looking for a motherboard for an fx 6300, I'll be using this system mostly for Virtual machines, because I do malware analysis and I use a lot of them. I need a motherboard that will support 16 gigs of ram at 1866, The ram that I have is XMP ready so it doesn't really have that amd profile thing but I know how to manually configure my ram voltages, etc... I really have been looking at the gigabyte boards, and the ASUS boards. I don't want an FX990 board so please 970 suggestions only.
