The MSI NF980-G65 is what I recommend.

I've been looking into that for a while and your recommendation just pushed me into ordering it off newegg. Good looking out.

There is none. That's why there's the 890X and 890GX chipset. The OP wanted a board with SLI capabilities on an AMD platform, and I feel the best board for that job is the MSI NF980-G65, which is based on the nVidia nForce 980a chipset. This chipset just so happens to have integrated graphics - the OP did not buy the board for the integrated graphics, he bought the board for the SLI capabilities.
