    MSI, Gigabyte, Asus and even DFI, all of their 790FX boards are the best to me. With MSI, you get 4 x16 slots, 2@x16 and 2 @x8. gigabyte is awesome and great for ocing, as is Asus. Not too sure on the DFI But Ive seen mixed reviews, more favorable then not.

    Ah, I didn't see either of them on newegg and didn't think to look for them on other sites, although that kind of suprises me considering I am running an MSI K9A2 Platinum which is MSI's top AMD chipset board and it was under 200$
