Hey guys i am looking to upgrade my motherboard! I am eventually going to get the AMD FX-8350. My only problem is i am not sure what motherboard would be good for it. I was considering the Asus m5a97. Would that motherboard be able to support the 8350? Thank you very much.

Parts right now are
AMD FX-4100
Radeon 7770 1 gb
750w Coolmaster powersupply
8gb ram
500gb hdd
and motherboard from this,

Thank you very much! I am hoping to keep the motherboard around 100-150. Do not want to spend over 150 on this. Also, are motherboards simple enough to install myself? Or should i pay the local computer store to do it, (which would cost $50 and make me have to spend less on mobo)
Thanks for the answers!

Motherboards are easy to install. It took me (first time) 10 minutes. Thats a great mobo.
