Which Motherboard For Me?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking to buy a new motherboard for my computer but with so many out there it is no small task finding the one that's right for me. Hopefully you guys can lend me a hand. I need a motherboard with the following features:

*Socket AM2
*Supports Athlon 64 X2 or FX
*DDR 2 or DDR 3 ram
*Nvidia SLI
*If possible a firewire port. (only if possible)

Cost is no problem. (as long as it doesn't get to high)

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

That's all subject to opinion. 'Best' and easiest to use are not synonymous. But, I think, for anyone who has to ask on an open forum which board to use, the Asus boards are a better choice than the DFI. The DFI has an assload of settings with no real guidance or info for them. You're tossed out into an ocean and expected to make it to shore with a set of water wings that is DIY-street's OCDB. With the brisbane setup, you're completely alone with it. There are no Brisbane entries into the OCDB to my knowledge.

It took me (a fairly seasoned DFI guy) two weeks to get a stable useable clock out of a brisbane and I really needed more to push it further.
