Default Asus dual socket for X2 cpu's?

I have an AMD X2 3800+ in an Asus A8N5X motherboard. I like it, but it only holds DDR 400 ram... I just discovered, after I went out last week and bought a 1 gig DDR 533 ram chip to add to my 2 512 DDR 400's and, ultimately, blew the new chip out. Twice.

So, if I'm going to upgrade my motherboard to handle the new ram (hopefully I'll get a replacement), I'd like to go all out and get a motherboard that'll let me have two of these dual core CPU's. I could really use the extra CPU power for some of the recording software I'm using...

Is there such a board? I've looked around and seen all kinds of stuff for Opteron chips (whoopdeedoo), but come on, what about my AMD X2 dual core? Surely there are dual socket boards for my type of CPU?
