My System Specs

Default Best AM3 Board.

Looking to build a new AM3 system. I'm split minded about a few boards, so I figured I would ask for some advice. What board would be the best board for AM3? I am looking for something decently priced, but that is reliable, and is able to overclock very well. I will be using a Phenom II x3 720 processor, and Mushkin HP DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) ram. [2x2GB]
Thanks in advance.

Considering AMD acquired ATI, I'm reasonably sure you'll have no trouble finding an AMD board with Crossfire :)

Myself, I have no experience with AMD platforms so I can't really make any suggestions. :/
