Default good motherboard for amd athlon x2 cpus?

hey, wussup all

I'm about to build a new computer and I'm trying to find which motherboard is good for an AMD Athlon X2 3600+ Brisbane cpu.
I have 3 motherboards to get in mind.
Would it be better to get the gigabyte or asus motherboard?

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-M55SLI-S4 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - ASUS M2N-E Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Greatly appreciate it if you guys can help me out.
Thx in advance.

they're better than the Asus M2N series, including the M2N32-SLI boards (which are more expensive)

I have a C51XEM2AA, and I can tell you it's worth paying for.
