Great motherboard without overclocking features?

Hi everyone,

I have two questions and would be grateful for your opinion:

1) I bought this power supply from newegg, this is what it says:


OCZ ZS Series 750W 80PLUS Bronze High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

I am not an expert but does in not just depend on the Main Connector? Because this one is 20+4Pin. More than anythings is that y would like to get one of those fx amd processors. Can I do that????

Here is the link to the page:

2) I don't know much about motherboards but I have watched various presentation videos and it seems that the more expensive a motherboard is the more overclocking features, heat sensors and a whole bunch of stuff. So this is the thing; I would like to buy a good quality motherboard, I'd pay 150 a little more if it's really necessary, but do I really have to pay for all those features (overcloking, etc). The truth is that I just don't play with those features so for me is no deal.

Is there a motherboard that without so much stuff but that is modern, has the capacity to run 2 video cards (for multiple screens).

I build my pc and play with it, I clean it every 2 or 3 months but besides that I just work and play games on it so I have never really gotten into clocking.

Opinions please?
