I'm looking for AM3 mATX motherboards with TWO PCI-E 16x or 8x slots

I'm looking for AM3 mATX motherboards with TWO PCI-E 16x or 8x slots. I'm having a hard time finding them.

 

This is the only one I could find on Newegg :(

Can you guys help me find some?

In reference to the MSI 890GXM-G65 board .
I have been using this particular board for about a year - It is a nice stable board ---- BUT do not overclock an X6 on it !
If you run an X6 ( particularly a 1090T) use a Top down cooler as that helps keep the VRMs cool . As this board has very weak VRMs .
I have had 3 from 3 fail ( all VRM failure ) with a 1090T at stock clocks and volts . I am currently waiting for my final warranty replacement board ( warranty expires the end of this month ) The retailer informed me that they have not had any problems with the board running Phenom II Quads - and it is his suggestion about the top down cooler .
If you intend to overclock - Get a different board .

True - very unwise to run the x6 to begin with, I've documented several stock speed x6 failures and I believe some x4 failures on it. See the link in my sig. Pretty much avoid running this board with any 125w processor.

Those are all ATX motherboards. I need a mATX motherboard.

Don't worry xd_1771, I've seen hundreds of your posts about MSI motherboards :) I have a Quad Core but the cooling in an FT03 is not optimal which is why I don't want to risk getting the 890GXM. I also have an H60 I might use which would make cooling for the VRMs even worse.

I should've went the Intel route :(
