ASUS A7V333. This was more than two years ago though when it was the latest and greatest. There are more up-to-date mobos than this one now. For people looking for mobos for AMD procoessors, I would recommend VIA chipsets over Nvidia. The support is more mature for VIA. AMD chipsets are also good, but not very common. If you want a 64 bit AMD processor, I would wait for 64 bit support to mature a bit more. Give it another year or so.
