Motherboard for AMD FX-8350 compatible with Debian Linux

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"*
  2. 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.

    I have that motherboard, but which cheap DDR3-1333 . AMD FX-8320. SSDs only. No HDDs now.

    I'll get you my solution should my 750W EVGA modular PSU be capable of handling a lot (what are you using your setup for) of coding but not fancy graphics. Not a gamer anymore.

    openSUSE is one distro I see AMD support a lot
