Default Looking for a good AM2+ board...

I am looking for a good AM2+ board for the Phenom...

I was thinking of this DFI:
Newegg.com - DFI LP UT 790FX-M2R AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

or possibly the cheaper DFI version....

How come there's only like 3 good boards out there for the Phenom??? lol

Heard good things about this board:
Newegg.com - MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

That DFI doesn't look too bad.

K9A2 is not a bad choice. Heard good things about the overclocking potential.

I ended up getting that DFI I posted a link to above...I am waiting for it to come from NewEgg...most likely on Thursday...anyway, so I am also returning my 9600 Phenom b.e. tomorrow for the 5000+ b.e.

My final 2 future mods are another 8800gts and the Phenom 9xxx...
