Hye, I recently bought a new CPU (Phenom II 945) but apparently my motherboard (Asus M2N68-AM Plus) does not support 125W processor. So, it would be very helpful if you guys can recommend a motherboard for me to use.

I am looking for something decent and cheap.
I don't play games much, only fifa
I do not overclock my system
I am not going to use SLI/crossfire

Also, I need a motherboard that fit my casing (not really big) so size is also important.

My current system:

Fixed link; I use biostar in both my am3 systems; they overclock pretty well and both mine unlock cores. Newegg sold out of my model TA880 GU3+.
