Budget? SLI or crossfire? I can name about 200 motherboards that meet your qualifications...

Here's a Gigabyte 970 board with a rebate that makes it look pretty sweet:

You are wasting your time and money on AM3. Its a dead end, there's no reason to not go with AM3+.

Based on many PC builds I also concur that Gigabyte mobos are an excellent choice for performance and reliability. The socket AM3+ mobos will run the 965 and allow an upgrade to Zambezi and other Bulldozer based CPUs in the future so that would be the smart buy right now.
