Default AM2 Board Assistance

Looking for a AM2 board, no need for onboard sound/video. Originally was planning on...
MSI K9N SLI Platinum Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16813130048
But reviews show the N bridge in a bad location and heat issues arise.

If anyone could assist me in locating the perfect board for this, would be greatly appreciated. As long as the Vid cards and Sound card should fit w/o any issues ill be happy lol. I don't know how to ensure that the cards will fit along with the sound car tis y I am posting.

Processor-
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Windsor 2000MHz HT 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16819103739\
2 Vids in SLI, Need 1 PCI for Sound Card aswell
MSI NX7600GT-VT2D256EHD Geforce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16814127217
Sound Card
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz -
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16829102178
Ram
DDR2 800 - 2gig

Thanks

Not familiar with Am2 stuff, but most people here are going to say get a Conroe.

I have the Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G and it works fine with my Athlon 64 3800+ AM2. It comes with good software and overclocks easily. As long as you don't need SLI this board will be fine.
