An Asus M5A99X Evo for motherboard, will cost you about 110-125, and wait till bulldozer is released to compare prices and performance or an upgrade to a Phenom II X4 or a X6, is the best you can do right now if you go AMD. A Socket AM3+ motherboard is reccomended, although the boards based on the 890FX chipset will support BD as well.
We should see some official benchmarks and expected prices of Bulldozer by the end of the month or beginning of September
