    AM2+ motherboards are no longer sold new and AM3/AM3+ boards will not accept your 9850 so anything you'll be looking for is used so you'll have to do your own research. I'd look in the AM2+ section of gigabytes website; GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM2+

    then find a board or two thta you like and then start searching ebay or other buy'n'sell sites until you find a board that'll work for you. but there isn't a board that I can recommend that is that old unfortunately. my AMD experience started with AM3.
