AMD 7750 cpu motherboard options

I have an old 7750 am2 socket cpu but am2 M/B's are discontinued so what options do I have? I would also like HDMI to use PC as a media ctr.

If you already have DDR2 to pair up with it, look for a 780G or 785G based board with a HDMI port (not all of them came with one).
