Ok, so, I'm basically driving my self crazy because once I do my first build, I don't want to upgrade my mobo for a good while. I've been looking all over the place and found a few here and there but, they were all flawed in someway that made me things to go with something different. So, like a spoiled child, here's what I wanna get from a board:
+I'm willing to look into other brands depending, but mainly I look for Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS in that order.
+Looking to spend no more than 215$ US.
+Needs to support AMD Phenom II X4 955/965 or Intel i7 920
+(Here's a fun one) Needs to be able to support SLI and Crossfire through two 16x, not dumbed down to x8
Annnndd, that's about it. Any help you can throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Dont touch MSI - rubbish for one
ASUS and GIGABYTE are the only real decent brands out there
You want to look for the correct chipset and features for what you want, then select a board based on it etc - go looking at that angle
Alright, good to know. ;3 Yeah, I honestly really only trust Gigabyte atm. But, I have seen MSI put to good use, and heard good about ASUS.
