Question Good AMD ATI mobo?

Wondering what a good mobo is that will support an AMD 3700+ SD and the new ATI x1800 XT coming soon?

It looks like its gonna be great for gaming/overclocking. Not out yet, but it looks good as far as I can tell.....

Crossfire is pretty buggy. and kinda difficult to set up.
just go for the NF4, which is more stable.
although I'd recommend going for a 7800 instead, because the R520 is only going to be a 16 pipe card

ATI might have something up their sleeves........I don't get why they would release a 16 pipeline card to compete with the 24 pipeline 7800GTX unless they are planning something.........Makes me wonder....Well anyways at least I'm looking forward to the new x1800x cards......Not to buy, just to see the benchmarks and compare it to nvidia......Never know if they use some new technology that boosts performance much like the thunderbird did for AMD........

EDIT: also give crossfire time, im sure ati will work out those bugs......
