I need advice on what kind of AMD motherboard would go well for my asus radeon r9 270x directcu ii GPU and also I have an AMD FX 4100 Quad core processor (4.2ghz) and was wondering if I may need to possibly upgrade that too if so what?

Well at the moment I'm only looking to upgrade the motherboard so around the €100 range, but anything around €50 would be awesome too

Not really. Post your full specs please.
But from what you posted, it's the processor that's bottleneck-ing your GPU.
If i were you i'd get a cheaper board but get a better processor

Sorry i forgot that you already posted your specs.
Processor is the cause of your bottleneck

Try AMD FX 6100 thats about $117
Or try jumping over to intel's side (you'll need new motherboard )
