I have the MSI 990FXA-GD80, and looking to upgrade my cpu to the AMD FX 4170 but I also want to upgrade my mobo. I'm on a tight budget of at most $165. Can anybody help? Thanks

That's an excellent high end motherboard. No need to upgrade from that. And I'd hold off on a new CPU by waiting for the new Piledriver CPU's.
