I mean, the CPU is like 4 years old so I'm thinking it might be hard to find a compatible motherboard.
I'm pretty sure you could buy one off OCN for cheap, but honestly if you can I would upgrade to ddr3 ram, a cheap am3 proc, and maybe an old 770 am3 board. I got mine for like ~$200 at the time. I'm sure now you could get a 3part build for $150.
The best am2 mobo I ever had was the m2n-sli deluxe
edit: I tried, someone could go better
