Hello, just looking for ideas on what motherboard to get.
Current Setup:

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor

ASUS M3N72-D AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

GeForce GTX 260

Now for the past few months i have had problems with the computer where it wouldnt turn on from a cold boot. Turning it on and off a few times would bring it back up and i would get a bios error saying it had been reset. Now it refuses to boot up. Just get a blank screen. I assume my motherboard just gave out.

Figured i might as well do a little bit of upgrading. Not looking for anything huge, I mostly play world of warcraft on that machine and what i have works just fine. Looking for a motherboard that when i get around to upgrading the CPU in like a year i will have good options for it.

I found this board and it looks very promising:

MSI 870S-G46 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Just looking to see if the community has any better ideas or suggestions. Thanks.
