  1. Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H AM3
    Check this one out, it's under 100 dollars and looks solid, comes with usb3 ports, and best thing, fits into ur built :D

    You could also look up for the asus crosshair III formula, you could get one for cheap on ebay. Got one like 2.5 years ago for an AMD 955BE like urs and works great, and also comes with some freebies (well u've probly paid for them in the price) like an external xfi soundcard, lcd poster and those cool lights in the mobo..

    Hope that helps
  2. If you have to purchase a new mobo, then you would be smart to get a new AM3+ motherboard which will give you upgradability for the new Bulldozer chips when they arrive.

    Check out the 970 or 990X. Even the 990X is only $139.
