Any socket AM3+ board. This allows for future upgrade to Bulldozer, and whatever else they come up with in the foreseeable future. Since the 965 is sort of old and sorta struggling with some titles today at high resolutions (I have one, paired with a 5870 it always sits CPU limited at 1920x1200).
There aren't many socket AM3+ on the market so far, so it should be pretty easy picking one. The cheapest, is probably a good bid :p
