I need to know if there is a decent motherboard that is capable of running these components:
CPU - AMD FX-9590 Black Edition Octa Core CPU Socket (AM3+, 4.7GHz, 16MB, 220W, FD9590FHHKWOF, Turbo Core 3.0 Technology)
GPU - XFX Radeon HD 7970 DD Edition 3GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Hard Drive - Samsung 840 EVO 500GB 2.5 inch Basic SATA Solid State Drive
Thanks in advance, and if there are other components you need to know please let me know.

There are, but you would likely be better off with the 8320/8350 cpus
Exactly which board you want depends on what features you want. For gaming you would probably want something would overclocking capabilities and multiple pcie 3.0 slots for crossfire/sli (multiple gpu). Asus and Gigabyte are good brands to look at, from there it's just pinpointing which features you think you might want
