Well we can't recommend anything unless we know what CPU and socket you're gonna go with.

Yeah, I mean, just cuz Asus is the most popular doesn't mean it's the best, personally, I think the 3 best mobo manufacturers are MSI, Gigabyte, and Asus. And you see that in my sig I have an Asus, but if the MSI nforce4 board had been out at the time, I would have gotten that.

Hey, those brands are good, especially since MSI is my fav currently, but im getting an ABIT soon, there are many other good companies besides the three you listed, like ABIT, DFI, Mach Speed, and EPoX

Have u bought the cpu yet?? Coz i'd consider goin socket 939 and wait a few weeks until the new cores come out, this will bring down prices of the existing 939 chips!!!
