Yet another what mobo should I buy thread!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know there are a ton of posts like this, so I almost feel bad making this. But here is what I am looking for. If you have any suggestions that would be awesome.

I will soon be purchasing the Phenom 970 to go along with this new mobo.

I prefer ASUS but I'm not married to it.
I would like to keep it under $150
USB 3.0 would be sweet.
Would like to run 8gb RAM (should not be an issue)
Don't care about onboard graphics/sound
6 sata inputs would be nice
And I really have no desire for any extreme overclocking, maybe a little if I could still keep it air cooled.

I am running this cooler now on my Athlon, would this suffice for the 970?

Thank you kindly.

Here's a nice Gigabyte board.

Also, that cooler is not going to be enough.

Edit: Wow, that motherboard does SLI. Nice!
