    I vote DFI INFINITY NF ULTRAII-M2 and also Newegg has a couple combo deal with it.

    The price of reliability is the pursuit of the utmost simplicity. It is a price which the very rich find most hard to pay.

    I would suggest to wait till September/October for new AM2+ motherboards and better CPUs.

    all the people at newegg seem to complain about the same thing.
    that the board ships with a bios that doesnt support Brisbanes this is DFIs fault.
    can be solved by flashing it with a non brisbane or contacting DFI for a new bios chip.
    and its chipset fan is utter crap .

    i myself would go with the Biostar 560.
