I have been trying to determine, without much success, which motherboard to purchase that will allow me to run Debian on a AMD FX-8350 processor.
Do you have any info that can help me? Ideally, you have a setup working that I can copy.
Thank you!

You will have a hard time trying to find a motherboard that doesn't work.

pretty much any AM3+ motherboard will be fine
*note: EFI support in debian is only present in version 7 "wheezy", not in version 6 "squeeze"*

Thank you, I decided to go with
•ASUS, M5A97 LE R2.0, AM3+, AMD® 970, DDR3-2133 (O.C.) 32GB /4, PCIe x16, SATA 6 Gb/s RAID 5 /6, USB 3.0 /2, HDA, GbLAN, ATX, Retail
•AMD, FX-8350 Eight-Core 4.0 - 4.2GHz, AM3+, 8MB L3 cache, 125W, 32nm, Black Edition, Retail

I will post the results of loading Debian once I get the hardware.
