So I have been searching for a motherboard post that is recent but nothing really answers the questions for me. . .

So I am asking the community which AM3 board would you choose within this price range. I would prefer to stick with a full ATX board just to have less issues with fitment and what not. And I have used ASUS in the past but I am open to other options if they have better stats.

The CPU and Memory going into this will be this.

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T

Matched with

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

I am wanting to have the possibility of Crossfire although I will not currently be using it. Right now I have an EVGA GeForce 8800GTS SSC Which is working well just being seriously choked by the 4-5 year old Pentium D 2.8. I will probably be buying a ATI 5770 or 5800 series later as a replacement but that is future not current.

Anyways your input would GREATLY be appreciated and thanks in advance.

That looks like a great mobo but I was thinking below $200 that doesn't really fit the search criteria. . . :(

if you plan to crossfire gigabytes ga-890fxa-ud5 would be your best choice, in your price point. i also own it and would recommend it. (mosox's first link)
currently $180 on newegg with free shipping
asus M4A89TD PRO/USB3 would also do you well. but its $5 more expensive without free shipping.
