Looking for Decent Mobo upgrade.

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!

  1. 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.
  2. Err if u meant 16/16 : HD 5870CF does not seem handicapped by 8/8 but it is odd u nabbed 2 x lower end with the intention to CF
  3. 2xHD5670 don't deserve ful 2x16..
  4. I bought them at a place that was going out of business, so they were relatively cheap... about $70.00 each.
  5. the drop from x 16 to x8 crossfire is hardly noticeable if you have anything under 5850's running then its still like 5%
