Depends on what processor...and what you intend to do...what options you want on a board, IMO.

well for performance, price, and most features, this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128415 is probably going to be the best AMD board out there, if your planning on going with a ATI/Crossfire setup, however what hamluis said is correct-it maybe overkill for what your using it for-what exactly is the intent of the board? gaming, multi tasking, do you plan on running crossfire, etc.



Primary system: Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 945, Memory: 16 gigs of Patriot G2 DDR3 1600, Video: AMD Sapphire Nitro R9 380, Storage: 1 WD 500 gig HD, 1 Hitachi 500 gig HD, and Power supply: Coolermaster 750 watt, OS: Windows 10 64 bit. 

Media Center: Motherboard: Gigabyte mp61p-S3, Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+, Memory: 6 gigs Patriot DDR2 800, Video: Gigabyte GeForce GT730, Storage: 500 gig Hitachi, PSU: Seasonic M1211 620W full modular, OS: Windows 10.

This is what I'm going to put in my build, but like others said - what do you want to do with your PC? Do you have a graphics card or do you want onboard graphics? Same with a sound card?

I'm getting this one b/c I dont really care about SATA 6 Gb/s or USB 3.0, but I do plan on crossfiring two video cards.
