Exclamation need new motherboard, amd compatable, sli

i am looking in the market for a new motherboard to start off my build, and want it to be sli-compatable and amd compatable. ive had enough of dell and their intel's. i've been looking at the fatal1ty by abit that has sli for around $230, but everyone is warning me too stay away if yr a first time builder.One of the Abit boards would be what i want, around 200 or less. Again, sli compatable.

Fatal1ty are great boards. I believe if you follow the manual carefully, anyone can install one of those. But here are other good choices for motherboards:

ABIT AN8 SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127207

I would still recommend the Fatal1ty:
ABIT Fatal1ty AN8-SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127206

Just be careful your parts are compatible with the board and you should be set. Check out this guy's crazy specs:

Fatal1ty AN8SLI Mobo
AMD 4800+ X2
EVGA 7800GTX KO * 2 in SLI
2gb of OCZ Platinum Dual Channel
Two 74 Gig Raptor Drives Raid 0

Man, that is like a dream system.
