Is a Biostar TA-970 (non xe version) good enough for an 8350?

I did look at the amd mobo vrm database, and it says its recommended, but I just wanted to be sure before I pulled the trigger.

Yes it's fine and is on the supported CPU list. I probably wouldn't OC too much on that board just to play it safe.

Why not go with something a little better and in the same price range like the Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P?

^ The 970A-G43 would not be better for this job due to a complete lack of VRM cooling, and a known weaker VRM setup.
