Best motherboard for $100 that supports the AMD FX-8350 I need to know ASAP as I'm about to place an order $100 is my max limit has to be ATX or close don't want mini or anything. I don't care about brands or whatnot just the best $100 motherboard that supports the FX-8350. I would like it to have 2 PCI-E's and 4 ram slots.

If you are planning to overclock you are gonna be disappointed. You will need a board with at least a 6 + 2 power phase (Asus M5A99 boards which are ~$130) or even more expensive boards with 8 + 2 power phase.

This is true. I would spend $30 more and get a better board. I have the M5A97 and can't get my fx-8350 above 4.4ghz.
