Default BEST FUTURE PROOF Phenom compatible SLI chipset MOBO on the market??

anyone care to point me in the right direction? See, im totally stumped at the moment, ive been doing tireless research on this topic for around 3 weeks now to no conclusive avail..so now I am breaking down and seeking objective advice from you folks if your willing to give it, thanks in advance!

oh btw, here are the models I have narrowed it down to so far, some of which arent SLI chipsets but still definite possibilities due to various compensating factors:

MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD

ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD

ASUS CROSSHAIR AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD

DFI LP UT 790FX-M2R AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 AMD AM2+ Phenom AM2 Athlon 64 series DDR2 SATA2 AUD ATX

Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe WIFI AM2 ATI DDR2 PCIEx16 ATX

Hey StoolKitten,
Welcome to Tech-Forums!!!


If you want SLI, you should look for:

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe
Foxconn C51XEM2AA- 8EKRS2H
EVGA 122-M2-NF59-TR

....as they are the best SLI motherboards for AMDs right now. I haven't seen the newer 780a SLI chipsets for AMDs.
