Default A Little Advice...?

Well im building myself yet another computer...and well I need some advice on which motherboard to get. I've already purchased an Aluminum 550w Midtower Case...so its gotta be that size. I can really buy any motherboard, I just need advice on which one is THE BEST for gaming. What I mean is PCIE, 4 DDR Slots, AMD Athlon 4000+ capabilities.... just anything great like that. Thanks to whoever responds.

I'd say any nForce4. nForce4 SLI is thee best for gaming, so you can have an SLI setup.
