Default Looking for a AMD Phenom II AM2+ mobo

I have played around with a Asus M3N78 VM but I would like to move to something which has more overclocking options for my X3 720 cpu..

I notice that most mobo's have onboard graphics ... whats up with that ?

Not looking for a 300$ motherboard either ... any suggestions?

I'm thinking about getting this one, a little less $, but you may have to flash the BIOS when you get it (Phenom II support is in 1.3 & 1.4):
