I would like to suggest GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Compare the features of both. You will find the GIGABYTE one is more suitable.

I hope you mean 6870.
Get a 955; you can easily OC to the clocks you'll need.
I like the Gigabyte.

yep sorry about that and this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
From what many people say though is the fan it comes with is terrible, so if im gonna need to buy a fan for it i would rather just go with the 970

The product is deactivated there. I believe you aren't advertising for newgg.

Go with 970 one.

If I'm not very much mistaken, the 970 comes with exactly the same stock fan as the 955. Go with the cheaper CPU and use the extra cash to get yourself a good third-party heatsink like the Hyper 212+ or TX3, respectively $30 and $20.
