What budget AM2 board should I look into?
I'm planning to get on the Phenom bandwagon and as soon as I sell my old system, I want to start building an AMD/Nvidia system (when the parts are available, obviously).
Right now, I'm very content with the Gigabyte P35-DS3L price point and performance (it's the current board I have). It offers amazing overclocking options for the price and it's built pretty solid.
What's the DS3L equivalent in the AM2 line of motherboards? Seems to me like the Asus boards are the most popular ones, particularly the ASUS M2N-E, but I really don't like Asus boards that much, but maybe it's a completely different story on the AMD side, I have no clue...
