Please help!!!
I need a motherboard. Not just any motherboard... the perfect motherboard! I've been spending at least 20 hours total looking at motherboards and I've given up! :) Here's what I'm looking for.

-At least 3 PCI-Express x16 2.0 slots (2 of them if an intigrated GC is present) (Run at 16x/16x/8x) as long as 2 GC run at x16 thats all I care about
-AMD
-AM3 slot
-DDR3 memory
-MUST BE ATX!!! (You can break all the other rules, but not this one...please.)
-Range from Phenom x3 to a Phenom x6
-Don't have to spend more than $150

Please help me. :) This was my last resort. I'm not trying to use you guy/gals, but please help.

MSI NF980-G65 board supports up to the AMD Phenomn II X6 Thuban cored 3.2 GHz processor with the latest BIOS up date, DDR3 memory, up to 3 nVidia SLI graphics cards with 1 card at x16, 2 cards at x16, or 3 cards at x8. Runs around $158 U.S.

MSI 790FX-GD70 borad AMD Phenomn II X6 Thuban cored 3.2 GHz processor with the latest BIOS up date, DDR3 memory, up to 4 ATI Crossfire graphics cards with 1 card at x16, 2 cards at x16, or 4 cards at x8. Runs around $168 U.S.

You can get some marked down open box sales on each of those bords at Newegg for $117 and $118. Here is the link.

edit 1: Found the 790FX-GD70 board for cheaper at two different places, and these are not open box:

Fry's has the 790FX-GD70 for even cheaper at $128 U.S.

You can also get the 790FX-GD70 for around $128 U.S. at Eworldsale.com

Hope that helps.

edit 2: forgot to add that those boards are ATX boards. :)

Found one more board that fits your criteria :) :

BIOSTAR TA890FXE, and yes, it will run 2 ATI Crossfire graphics cards at x16...its also ATX. :) It is supposed to be a very stable board to overclock with if you want to want to get into that. You can get it at Newegg for around $140.. You can also get it for that same price at Fry's.
