Need a new AM3 motherboard recommendation

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been looking into a problem recently with what I thought was just a video card issue, but turns out it's a problem between my motherboard and video card. I went through a couple months of having some pretty bad issues and just found the source yesterday: Nvidia 400/500 series lockup club

Apparently it's pretty wide spread between many motherboard brands and different Fermi-based video cards. Anyways, I need a new sub-100$ AM3 motherboard that had similar features to the one in my sig-rig that's confirmed working with a GTX 460 768MB.

Hoping that isn't asking too much but I'm just exhausted from getting my computer into a usable state.

sorry but that's quite a bit higher than the sub-100$ price range I stated before, if I was going to spend that much I'd just get a new graphics card instead.

yep sorry, didn't see that little bit of information. I thought it was odd that there were no factors limiting your decision.

hopefully this is considered sub 100$, but this is an awesome board.

Thanks I'll look into these, I'm not sure if you're familiar with the issue I linked to in the OP but do you know if these play well with Fermi based cards?
