Get something with 140W CPU support if possible, this will allow for a 6 core upgrade later on if they get the chance.
I got my board for under $100 and it is great for a 965.

Asus M4A87TD-EVO SATA 3, USB 3.0.

Well the 965 is a 125W cpu, so you need to make sure the board supports that (which the one you showed does). However, you also picked one of the cheapest boards, leaving almost 0 room for upgrade in the future. So you're limiting things as well.

Very kind of you, couldn't imagine a better present myself to be honest. Sure you don't want to wait until amd bulldozer comes out in 2 weeks?

OOO 2 weeks but you see we cant afford a better comp

we are fresh outa highschool and i dont really work (or i dont want to just yet) and the total cost has been around 700 bucks (i had extra powersupply and a friend had extra ram/and this cpu) so we are not gonna get him a new CPU since we already have it

so its confirmed that this motherboard WILL work well with this cpu?
