Best Motherboard for Amd-FX 4170 cpu

Hi, I am just about finished with my new gaming rig and i need to know what's the absolute best Mobo I can get in the range of about $100-$130. Here are the specs of my new rig...
Cpu: Amd-FX 4170
Gpu: Evga Geforce gtx 660 Ti
Ram: Pny Optima 4x2gb (8gb total) 1333 mhz
Mobo: -???-
HDD: Western Digital caviar black 1tb


It also needs to handle Ram up to 1866mhz (for future upgrades).

P.S. And if possible can we try to ave some wiggle room for a decent sound card within that range^??

Thanks in advance for your help! :)

  1. I found a mobo which might just be the one!

    It has 2 PCI-Express x16 slot's - just incase you want to use SLI or CrossFire.
    It can support upto 32GB of memory and 1866Mhz , you can always change this in the bios btw. It also supports AM3 or AM3+ processor's.
    I'm more of an Intel man but AMD processor's are still good for some builds!

    This might sound weird but im not the biggest fan of gigabyte motherboards as i have had bad luck using those mobo's before. But thanks for helping :)

    If you’re new to building, stay away from the older 970 chipset. There are pitfalls you don’t want to mess with without some experience, even though they are less expensive boards.
