Hey folks I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what a good motherboard would be to pair with my friends phenom x4 965 be cpu build? I know he is planing to do a good amount of overclocking and dual 4890's in crossfire. Not looking for anything over like $100 I seen a few on newegg but I dont want to choose a dud.USB 3.0 is a must! I will be pairing the cpu with 4 gigs 2x2 of ddr3 1600. The memory modules are made exactly for AMD black edition cpus. I would appreciate any suggestions with moel numbers please. The newest chipsets would be awesome. I can spend up to $150 but I prefer not to go that high. Thanks alot guys!

The 955 is a better option because it clocks just as high and is cheaper than 965.

Your not going to get crossfire and USB3.0 for under $100.

This is the closest I could find on Newegg.

+1 on this motherboard, the MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3.
