If you want a atx board look at these.

Micro-ATX is a smaller motherboard made to fit in small PC cases. It will have fewer slots and connections available.

A full ATX board will fit in any standard computer case and will have all the slots and connections you would expect in a PC.

I'm a big fan of side-by-side comparisons. You know, actually listing out the specification and components that are on all motherboards, and then comparing the different product's specs against each other.

For instance, some motherboards have 2 network interface ports (NICs). Do I need 2? No. So I will eliminate all those boards from consideration.
Some boards have newer sound chips, some have more SATA connections, etc. You might give those boards extra 'stars' for greater consideration. That way you can see if you can get more bang for the buck.
Oh, yeah, and then there is the price........

Oh, no! So that is what you were thinking. That is not going to happen.

To do SLI or Crossfire you normally need 2 identical graphics cards. There is no way that I know of to run the CPU graphics and the graphics card at the same time.

I thought it was 2 cards based on the same architecture?

With the APU Hudson it's my understand that the proper GPU will run side by side with the APU.
