Hi all, I'm currently building a new computer for gaming and need advise in selecting the correct AMD AM3 motherboard that suits my specs below:
CPU: AMD3+ x8 FX-8320
Case: Coolermaster USB3.0 RC-K380
RAM: 8G Kit 1600 Patriot-S
Power Supply: Coolermaster Extreme Power Plus RS-500 Watt. PSU
Hard drive: Seagate SATA3 1TB
GPU: 2G 7870 MSI OC
What motherboard do you recommend that is not too pricey but will perform well with my CPU and GPU, also any thoughts about my build??

This is the best motherboard your money can buy
I have a 1075T (it is a locked CPU) and upon first boot, I automatically OCs your processor, mine runs a 3.6Ghz... pretty amazing motherboard, and its less than $200.

And another thing, just for the sake of everything looking nice and making it easier on you, get a ASUS video card. they have VERY great OCing capability.
