Want a different Motherboard

Hi all,

I am building the following computer...starting to order parts. The more I read on the motherboard listed the more I want to change it to a board with a better layout as I plan to crossfire the video cards. It seems this layout puts the cards very close to each other. Can anyone recommend a better motherboard that will work with the parts I have listed? I don't mind spending more. I have already purchased the hard drive, CPU cooler, case, and PSU. If there are other recommendations I will take them....CPU maybe???? This will be for gaming mainly and internet. Thanks!

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - $289.99

The PCI-e x16 lanes are much further apart than the other Asus P6T board.

Great, Thanks! I had looked at that one but wasn't 100% confident in my decision making as this is my first build.
