Does the 760 Chipset (I know it's old) strongly hold back possibilities for overclocking? If not... Then the 78lmt USB3 would be a real good option for me... As I saw it has heatsinks on the mosfet.. that's great... But is it sufficient?
OC on AM3 was mostly done via the CPU multiplier because there were so many "Black Edition" CPUs with unlocked multipliers
also 760G is the same as 780G just with some IGP features (I think more specifically regarding video decoding) removed.
the "FSB" overclocking on it I don't think changes much, in general am2/am3 was pretty good with that, but I don't know specifics,
but for OC you should research the motherboard model itself, which options it offers for adjusting voltages and dividers/multipliers, if the VRM is decent (AM3 CPUs can draw a lot of power and some cheaper MBs were only designed for lower models)
