Which AM2+ motherboard to choose that doesn't need its BIOS flashed?

Feb 15, 2009
275 (0.08/day)
Processor Intel Core i5 6400 @ 2.7GHz
Motherboard Asus B150M-A
Memory Kingston 8GB DDR4 @ 1063MHz
Video Card(s) MSI GeForce GTX 970
Storage Crucial 250GB SSD

I've so far checked out "Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-DS4H" as my first choice of an AM2+ motherboard, but are there any other options, perhaps?

This is the rest of my setup:
- AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition
- Antec Three Hundred
- Corsair TX 650W
- HIS Radeon HD 4870
- Mushkin XP2-6400 (4096 MB)

So yeah, which motherboard do you recommend me to get that doesn't need its to be flashed and that goes well with the other parts? That's a very important thing for me. Oh, and the motherboard should have AT LEAST 2x PCI-E x16!
