Is the Biostar TA890FXE still on sale for $109 at Tiger Direct? That is a good deal and would work well with the 955.

Just looked and it still is.

This is the board I have and I absolutely love it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130269

You can pick it up as a Refurbished(usually an open box) for under $100.

Great for overclocking!

Single video card cheap solution.

This is the best you will get but it's $20 over your budget.

Refurbished doesn't mean open box. It means either it was returned without original packaging or the packaging was heavily damaged during shipment. They are tested for basic functionality and come with or without accessories.

Tiger Direct listing $109.99.

Yep http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813138193R


I second this board. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131646


It really hasnt been mentioned yet, but I Strongly recommend an 8 phase power board. It will give you a more stable overclock with your quad, and will allow you to upgrade to an x6 processor in the future without any issues. Most of the boards that have been linked thus far are not 8 phase.
