Looking for a motherboard either ATX or Micro for my budget rig. This processor is new but my last board burnt out. I am not ready to give up on this CPU just yet because I was very satisfied with the previous results. Also a nice case and link to it would be appreciated. NOTE: I will not OC anything. I need the mobo to support a EVGA 550Ti 1 GB ddr5 GPU. THANKS

I thought of this one as well but its an AM3+ socket. My CPU is AM3 =\

AM3+ is downwards compatible to AM3 but not the other way around so that board is fine. If you looked at the specs of the board on the link, you would have seen CPU TYPES: FX / Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100 Series
