I have my old AM2+ motherboard for sale here. It overclocks nicely and you can use it as a board to keep you busy before you get an enthusiast board. But other then that, a 785g board would work great.

I've thought about going to AM3 for the extra $100 or so, so can anyone recommend any cheap RAM?

I am confuse here. You want a DDR2 or DDR3 motherboard? The 955BE will support either way.

I decided I might as well go to the AM3/DDR3 motherboard and spend an extra $100 on RAM.

Eh, I'd like to keep it as close to $100 as possible for any motherboard recommendations.

See a motherboard as a future investment - AMD are very good to their customers - there are rumors that Bobcat will be AM3+ - so any 870/880/890/X/GX/FX/ motherboard should support bobcat with a BIOS update.

I would recommend this:

Newegg has MSi and ASuS models.

If you decide to go AM2+ - I hear the six core Thuban (for AM3 socket) should be backwards compatible - its based on socket AM3 and has throttling capabilities for single threaded apps.
