MSI 890FXA-GD65 I think is around 100.

Get the Biostar 890FX board. It'll happily take your 1055T to 4GHz with ease. Don't be scared away by its 4+2. It's a solid board, even for x6 chips.

And yes, it supports Crossfire natively (4 way). If you wanted to SLI, just use the SLI hack on it. There isn't any decent AMD boards (currently) that do SLI.

Nope. Around $150 or so I believe. Thats actually a good MSI board. 8+2 power phase and will be AM3+ ready.

if I am willing to spend around $150 (since biostar is basically this price point) is there a better board to choose from or will that Biostar still beat MSI board recommendation?

That particular MSI board I would say is a good board. The main problem folks have with MSI boards are them burning up because they have weak 4+1 power phase boards, but that board is one of their two boards I believe that is 8+2 phases therefore can handle hex core and even 8 core cpu's overclocked without burning up. Well I'm assuming it can handle the 8 cores of course. I would get the MSI 890FXA-GD65 over the Biostar TA890FXE. Mainly cuz the Biostar hasnt officially been deemed AM3+ compatible yet, even though many believe it will soon.

Im saying the Biostar hasnt been officially said to support AM3+ as of now. At least not too my knowledge. Though this stuff changes every week.

If your willing to up what your going to spend, try looking at the ASus mobo i have in my sig rig-i love it and it is a rock solid board, and new egg has it on sale with a rebate also . And it is one Asus has a bios update that can be used to except all am3+ cpu,s. Just another option since you upped what your willing to spend.
