Fairly new to this so I need some help.

Recently I bought a AMD FX 6300 3.5ghz CPU. Right now I have a m68mt-s2p rev 3.0 Mother board. I didnt know there were 2 different versions of this mobo and the 3.0 doesn't support the CPU I bought. I can not return the CPU, so I figured I would get a new mother board.

I use Gskill ripjaw (2x4) RAM. I do not know what other information I would need when buying a new mobo. I would like to stay in the 75-150$ range. I planned on getting a ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+, but I read that they have problems with Gskill RAM.

Any suggestions and feedback are GREATLY appreciated. ( I use my PC for gaming )

i loved the ASUS M5A97 r2.0, did my FX 6300 wonders at 4.5 Ghz. Even held up my FX 8320 at 4.1 ghz just fine.

See this was my Top pick, but I have read that there are compalitibilty issues with Gskill rip jaw ram. Do you know if this is true? Anybody for that matter?

The asrock will do fine with your GSKill RAM. Would consider looking at the mobo I posted too. You'll get better OCing from it than the AsRock, but the AsRock will do if you don't plan to OC and such.
