Hello,

I'm in the market for a Dual-CPU AM3 Socket motherboard.

With 2 or more PCI-e x16 slots.

Can anyone recommend any? I prefer Gigabyte, but am happy with any brand.

Dual AM3 CPU's mobos don't exist by the looks of it. And AM3 doesn't support dual / multiple CPU's. A few sites say the closest thing you'll get to it is by using Opteron CPU's

Or if you can find / or afford one of these, you could buy a 1366 dual cpu mobo. Which will support up to 144 GB (8-18 memory slots)! Thats if you can find the memory
