I'm looking to get a decent AMD AM3 motherboard, hopefully with pcie2.0 x16 in at least 2 lanes. Onboard GPU is not necessary.. would really like one that makes unlocking cores easy because I plan on getting a Phenom x3 720. The cheaper the better! Any suggestions would truly be helpful, thank you in advance!

I like it, but it doesn't have x16 pcie in both lanes, x8 in crossfire mode. I have x2 5670's i'd like to crossfire and use to their fullest potential.

I bought them at a place that was going out of business, so they were relatively cheap... about $70.00 each.

the drop from x 16 to x8 crossfire is hardly noticeable if you have anything under 5850's running then its still like 5%
