    Mobo advice?

    Cut things short I think my mobo is on its way out. And I dont know much about the stuff available today.
    Basically... what is the best socket 939 board that supports X2 cpu's.

    I cant afford to upgrade my graphics to a decent card so is there any budget pcie cards around that will give me the same performance as my 6800U but doesnt cost a fortune?
    Ill have to save up for a nice 7900GT later or maybe wait for a DX10 card.

    Thanks in advance.

    CoolerMaster ftw!!!

    Whoops, I should have added in the origional post: an XP90 must be able to fit.

    I was looking at the a8n-sli premium but wasnt sure if it was anygood. Ill have to check out the reviews. The DFi's are a bit pricey but Im sure they are good.
