Looking for a good motherboard

I'm getting ready to build my first computer. I'm currently picking out all my parts. I'd like to use a case that has 2 front USB 3.0 but all of the motherboards that I've seen have just one front USB 3.0 plug. If possible would anybody be able to direct me to a motherboard that has 2 front USB 3.0, supports AM3+ processors (AMD FX series processors), and costs less than 100 USD? I've looked everywhere and can't find one. Please help!

Most AM3+ boards should have an onboard USB 3.0 header.  1 header is good for 2 ports.

The MSI 970 Gaming supports it too. Just not sure what else you were looking for it to have. Good board for the price.

So if it has on header it'll support 2 ports? Pardon my ignorance since I'm fairly new to this, but how does that work?

Yes. Unless your case has 4 USB 3.0 ports, you'll only need 1 header.
