I just purchased an Antec 300 so that I could upgrade the rest of my build.

It needs to be AM3 (at least 125 watt TDP), but I'd like at least 3 PCI-E slots. (pref 2@ x8 and 1@ x4)
Also needs to be a standard ATX motherboard.

Also, I'll be needing a new version of Windows 7 to go with the motherboard.


If you can find a combo deal that matches that criteria that'd be terrific!
If not no worries, I'll just purchase them separate.


My budget for both would be under $225 unless it's an amazing deal.


Thanks in advance for your time and effort!

SLI isn't supported on AMD without hacking drivers/mobo..... Sorry =/

Win7 is like 80$ right now... I'd grab a copy ASAP!

I would go for this board if you need 3 PCI-E slots and AMD SLI:

EDIT: Better yet, here is a combo with win7 home premium and that motherboard that costs $225 before rebate and $205 after you send in the $20 rebate on the motherboard:
