i want it to be:

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

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
