What is your budget?
Heres a pretty nice board:
Newegg.com - EVGA 122-M2-NF59-TR Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

or if on a tight budget:
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TFORCE 550 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 550 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-M61P-S3 Socket AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

EVGA looks like a very nice board with the rebates it looks even nicer.. I really don't have a budget just want something rock solid and able to play with Bios.

The XFX 590SLI is $90AR right now which is the exact same board as that eVGA and the $170 Foxconn reference 590 board. These two are great boards for the money. Your specs are pretty hard to read though just fyi.

The 590 isn't much different or better than a 570. The 550 is still a really good board even....still if you can stand rebates the XFX 590 for 90 bucks sounds like a really good deal.
