so I had a old CPU that I had not installed when I bought it a year ago.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition

I plan on making a new computer and need a recommendation on the MoBo that I should combo with this CPU

here is my criteria for MoBo:

Cheap (~$80)
Great chipset ( I don't need my stuff dying out too soon)
I'm planning on running SSD (only SATA 6.0 Gb) so it should accommodate that
Planning on using this for gaming so I will be getting a GPU (so no on-board graphic required)
ATX

and if you can recommend me a RAM to go along with it that would be swell

can anyone else chip in? (pun intended)

I am not sure what chipset I should go for? is 970 a good place or will 880 suffice?

oh and although I want to OC, I think honestly I would not do it as I just want to play games and would not notice the difference. If that's the case should I go for mATX?
