Motherboard for AMD 8350?

I have an AMD FX 8350 but the current motherboard I have doesn't properly support a 125W CPU, which was my fault for not properly checking this, I did however check the CPU support list and it showed to be supported. Wondering if someone could show me a decent motherboard for a fair price that will support this CPU better as I am not very good with chipsets and such. Thanks

  1. If your just gaming tbh I'd sell that CPU, current motherboard & any DDR3 you have. A newer gen "budget" CPU would easily outperform that 8350 in gaming and it's not worth trying to find a compatible motherboard unless you getting it next to nothing.

    Even the Ryzen 3 1200 outperforms it quite a bit, especially when overclocked.

    I doubt I'd get much for the parts if I did sell it, so I'd rather just get a different mobo and wait a couple of year before jumping to a new setup
  3. I see, well this is the cheapest board I could find that supports that CPU.
