Question New Motherboard

Hi. I am thinking about purchasing an AMD Athlon 64 3200 processor. However, i am having problems finding a compatible motherboard. I need one that optimizes the ability of the Athlon, has at least 5 pci slots, and other goodies. Please Help.

I do have to flash the bios since I am using a 90nm chip and the version of bios that come installed dont support them real well. Now I have to wait till my floppy drive comes so I can make a boot disk to flash them.

Here is basically the same model but with more features.

I say you get the s939 version and then get a MSI Neo2 Platinum.
