looked around for you and for a person thats on a tight budget, this is a great board to get at a good price:
http://www.eio.com/p-35106-asus-m5a87-am3-amd-870-sata-...
it has USB3.0, SATA 6Gb/s with AM3+ support.
i've always gotten ASUS boards, and i can tell you that they will never disappoint you.
this board should last you a long time, as long as you treat it right ahahaha :p

was thinking of breaking the budget a bit and buying this mobo ASUS M5A97 EVO , as it has things like lossless audio support and easy overclocking abilitys, now its the ASUS M5A97 EVO vs Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 its all down to is the asus really worth the extra $$$, they have the same south bridge and chipset etc so . . . .
