Default MOBO Recommendations

Hi there. I'm about to get a 'AMD Athlon 64 4000+' right, but I don't know which motherboard should go with it. The AMD site made a few suggestions; can someone tell me which one I should go for?

The companies AMD suggested are: Abit, Asus, ECS, EPoX, Gigabyte, MSI, Shuttle, Soltek, WinFast. Thanks.

Well it depends on more than the CPU. Are you getting dual channel RAM or not? Do you want to take the SLI route or another?

You posted on compforum.com didn't you

Well, once again, Abit AN8 all the way. There is a SLI version of the fatality, BTW. I just have the standard AN8. I beleive the only real difference is SATA2 support.

MSI and Abit are cool, The ABIT AV8 3rd eye is pretty cool and affordable.
