Avoid asus on that series, I've had a phenom x4 965 BE, had 2 faulty M4A88TD PRO then replaced for the very same TV EVO/USB3 garbage, failed with little less than an year, then went with an dfi lanparty until i replaced the entire thing. Prior to that, an A7N8X-X also faulty...

Older asus boards sucks, tbh Asus is garbage still... just go for anything but asus for an AM3 chip, and no AM3+ if im not wrong is for the bulldozer series, so they arent compatible

Im sorry I was not clear in my thread, I would like to keep the 8350 but replace the motherboard and most only seem to have the standard 3 port audio jacks and I use 6.
