Boards based on nVidia chipsets used to be the only way to go for best performance, but boards based on AMD chipsets have pretty much taken over, unless you want an SLi config. VIA & SiS based boards have all but disappeared from the market.

You list DDR3 RAM...that rules out the Biostar board, so you're left with the ASUS, but it has no integrated graphics, the other two do. I don't know if that's an issue or not?

Integrated graphics is not a problem since im going to put my
4850 in there, also when i asked about the Biostar board at local
stores they said that it can support DDR3, so does some
reviews i see on it.

Sorry, I just checked the Biostart site & you're correct. I think I looked at the A2 by mistake:

No problem we all make mistakes, thanks though for the quick response.

Well i've just gone through a review on the MSI board and seems like its a no go for overclocking because its something to do with the power supply cables, its only got like a 6-pin something on the motherboard for the psu to plug in, which doesnt give it enough power to oc stable, i dont know ( cant find that page again, and my net history is gone every few minutes :P )

Also would you recommend i even look at a xfire / sli mobo with this power supply? and is there single gpu am3 boards that are good and around the price range of these?
