Ok, so I am getting a FX6300 CPU. I need to get a Motherboard to go with it.

$200 is my absolute max for both. Would prefer to stay under $160 if possible.

I saw the combos. http://www.microcenter.com/site/products/amd_bundles.as...

But I read the reviews and some worry me, are there any mobos on this list with the combo cpu any of you would suggest? I have a XFX Double D 7870 Graphics card and a XFX Pro 750W PSU.

I am leaving at 10am to go to Micro center, its 430am atm, so any fast replies /reviews/suggestions on a decent & affordable mobo on my budget is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I'm not a big fan of AMD's CPUs anymore (I used to be a fanboy of theirs...) but anyways, of the combos you linked, my personal choice would be: http://www.microcenter.com/product/398235/M5A97_R20_Soc...

Best,
