Default Socket AM2 Motherboards

Okay I have been trying to find some good ones, but I have found it hard. Virtually all I can find are mini-ATX as well.

Anyone got any good recomendations, full size ATX please

This has so many bells and whistles it sounds like a church. Its 149 bucks its SLI capable and designed for OC. It has the new heat pipe so no fans. Its wicked I am getting it myself.

It comes with a whole bunch of free software and you get teh ASUS probe which from my exp is teh best probe for mointoring temps I have ever seen.

^^^
Due to Asus making such poor K8 motherboards, I am extremely weary to buy another one of their motherboards. And with quite a few suppliers they were the highest returned item (The A8V and A8N). For now, im going to not go with Asus. And their overpriced since Asus are just a bunch of marketing whores.

I was thinking possibly the MSI boards

I've been fortunate not to have any bad motherboards. Asus and MSI are suppose to be tops when it comes to motherboard reputation. Seems like a lot of the new AM2 motherboards are experiencing problems here and there. If upgrading firmware doesn't fix anything, it's another RMA for you. I've always been loyal to MSI. I never used an Asus before so not too much comments on that. Research some of the MSI motherboards. To tell you the truth, that Asus motherboard you linked does look pretty good and if I had a choice, that would be one of my top ones to pick from.

I've loved all my ASUS motherboards. They've all been trouble-free for me.
