  1. A good mid-range board that I like to recommend to AMD people is this. It has all the bells a whistles, and is very durable:
    GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  2. Best answer
    A nice $100 board.

    If you are going to be gaming at resolutions above 1680x1050, I would recommend a step up in your graphics card choice, though.

    I'm glad to see you wil be relying on a SSD for your main drive. The green drives are a tad slower than regular drives (5400rpm vs 7200rpm). And some of them have the nasty habit of going into sleep mode.
