i would like to buy a new m/b. as the one i have no requires me to out pressure on the hsf in order to boot properly (i have checked out the cpu (a 5200+) and the hsf mounts, all fixed tightly.. but it wont boot unless i spquash it to the m/b.. so..

I need a pci-e x16, i use a dual slot HD3870, but i would like to upgrade to using crossfire in the future.. but i would also like to be able to use at least 2 pci slots. i have an auzentech mystique, so the digital sound off a motherboard is not necessary.

It needs to be am2/am2+ compatible and would prefer the ati chip set, but not essential...

any thoughts..? i was looking at the DFI LANPARTY DK 790FX-M2RS? but i want cheap lol

I think you were right on with your first thought with the DFI board. Rock solid.
