Need help deciding on a mobo! HALP! XD

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

+DDR3 only

Annnndd, that's about it.
Any help you can throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :D

  1. 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 :)
  2. 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.
  3. Bump. Still need help pleeeeeze! XD
