hey, finally going to decide what mobo to get and a friend of mine is away whos supposed to help me, and i only got 1 hour left so:

ok, so either i get this $95 board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but there this one which has everythign plus more for only $15 more so which should i get out of these two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

^ thats probably the highest i should of went on paying but i could pay up to $140. so if i were to get a board for $140 which should i get? help me find one, i want to crossfire so i need 2 x16 slots ( i got the GIGABYTE 6850 GPU), plus its amd quad core proccessor , so AM3+ socket. and this is the one i had so far: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

would like the best possible cuz this one is 1 x16 , and other is 1 x8. Need reply's ASAP! Thanks in advance! :)

Alright then.
ASUS makes some solid MoBos, so you should have a good experience with it.
You do not NEED x16 on both slots in Crossfire; even with x8 there will virtually be no performance difference (at most, 5 FPS loss).
For $140, I'd go with this Gigabyte MoBo:

The second MoBo looks promising.
The ASUS does seem to have quite a lot of negative reviews.
Go for the $110 Gigabyte MoBo.

I think the Gigabyte will work out fine for you; no need to overspend.
Also consider the AsRock I've mentioned before; they probably have the best price-performance ratio in the market when it comes to MoBos (excluding their Fatal1ty MoBos...).
