I put my vote for the DFI lanparty SLI-D. The best overclocker out there. Has SLI capabilities and AMD X2 compatible.

Don't get the Fatal1ty boards. You are paying some loser who can't spell, for his name on the board, and a couple of fans.

The DFI lanparty boards are not so so advanced that you can't use it. It just has more options in the BIOS for overclocking, like more timing options to adjust. but you will not need to bother with them.

btw. If you like the Abit motherboard, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127207 but Abit mucked up the AV8 so I would be warry of that one, check the Abit forums for other peoples reviews who have used it.

Why do you swear by the worst motherboard recently made by a popular company? (This does not include ECS and Jetway)

DFI Lanparty SLI-DR are the best. They are friendly for new people, just do not go around moving jumpers, changing BIOS settings because it will work perfect out of the box.

The Abit Fatality is also nice, and heavily overpriced. MSI K8N Neo-4 is also another good choice.
