Hi my older brother gave me his old computer i salvaged some parts and i'm left with a amd phenom x3 processor am2+ and a nivida gt 530 graphics card. I need a motherboard that can support this and preferably ddr3 memory. Do you know any motherboards and i would like to keep the price range under 100$ but i'm flexible. Any help would be nice. thanks for your time ~justin.

Are you sure that cpu is AM2+. I thought all Phenom II cpus were AM3

The pickins are slim. Basically you need an AM3 motherboard. It's a shame you are going to reuse that cpu because it locks you into an old MB design (AM3) that is a dead end. Anyhow, here we go:
