Default Decent gaming motherboard under $100 for AMD

Hi, I'm looking for a AMD AM3+ motherboard for under about $100. I'll be using a Phenom II x4, a Radeon 7850 2gb, and 2x3gb ram. I would like it to have at least 4 USB slots. Are there motherboards better for gaming than others? I'd like to pay about $70 but will pay up to about 90. Lastly what should I look for in a motherboard to tell me if its fast/ good for gaming?

Here is the one I'm thinking about getting if you can find a motherboard better or cheaper please post the link thank you!

The 970 will get the job done if you plan on sticking with a single video card.
