Cheap for me is anything under $125

BIOSTAR TF560 A2+

If you dont mind spending a little more then definitely go with this.

Penicilyn gave you a couple of real good choices there.... you might also consider the Biostar TA770 A2+:

.... but I'm not really sure how much of an OC you could get on the 9500.... 2.4-2.6, maybe more?

I recently purchased an Asus M3A from tiger direct for 99+tax...has a fair ammount of OC options though I have not used them yet.

Voltages, multi's, clocks, memory timings, and so on.

Only catch is there is only 1 PCIe 16x slot. Fairly good layout though I was able to run all the cables under the mobo without reaching halfway across it. Everythings on the edges...if that matters

Plus it's Asus, which might be a little better quality than say Foxconn or Biostar

Does support quads, says the box.
