What is the best motherboard for amd phenom II x4

Hello,

I have the following:

amd phenom II x4
2} Geforce 88ooGT (512)
1000 watt power supply
4 sticks ram mem


I'm looking for a mobo that will allow SLI mode and handle really extended hrs of use. (I'm a GAMER at heart) I want 2.0 speeds at the usb!! {Price of Mobo under 500 bucks is the limit} Any Ideas ?

P.S. What will be the fastest mem I'll need for the mobo or will the 4 gig I have be good? (Ballistix DDR2 PC2-6400/DDR2-800
1 gig sticks)


I thank you in advance for your help.

Michael

    AMD and SLI are not 'friends' but there are a few good AMD MOBO that support SLI. You'll need NEW DDR3 RAM, and 2GB for 32-bit OS or 4GB for 64-bit OS is recommended.

    ASUS M4N98TD EVO
