Question Motherboard Recommendations?

Hello.

Recently a friend of mine acquired an FX-6300 processor, and 4GB of RAM. Without going into the origin of these parts; I was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent am3+ motherboard for this processor at or below $100? The only real pre-requisite they have is that it needs an IGP; and I ask only because they want the opinion of more experienced builders.

Here's one I found that I was considering recommending to them. But I am unsure of its quality.

Newegg.com - Open Box: ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 AM3+ AMD RX881/760G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Thank you for your time.

That doesn't have an IGP.

Here's an ASRock option.
ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+ AMD 880G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

A better Asus option.
Newegg.com - ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI USB 3.0 uATX AMD Motherboard

In case you glanced at the ports in the back, that's a COM port bro, not VGA lol.
