    i want it to be:
    $100
    ATX
    New and good chip set
    good crossfire support
    ddr3 2000 or 1600
    AM3
    Core unlocker

    ummm i dont think im missing anything...

    but i have been looking at these 3 boards

    Open Box: BIOSTAR TA890FXE AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/...

    Open box: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131631R

    Foxconn A9DA-S AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186198

    Witch one of these two is better?

    And is there any other boards that might be a better choice for me?

    I know that for crossfire, if you don't have enough money to get 890FX, you are better of getting 870g. It is not that powerful, but it allows better cf scalability
