Default Shopping for a Mobo

Hey, I'm looking for a mobo that would support the specs in my sig.. ecs sux. I don't know which would be the best brand. So far I know that Asus and Abit are good board. I'm looking for one that $100 and under.. I shop @ newegg. Is biostar a good one?

I was thinking of this one

Thx in advance

I have used BioStar in the past and found the board to be very reliable. Now I use MSI and they have excellent quality. And for a resonable cost. Check with Musky over at my place. He's a MSI dealer.

Biostar, MSI, Abit, Asus, DFI, Gigabyte, are all high quality motherboards. That motherboard will get the job done for the price. Reliable.

ASUS makes the best Intel boards IMO. They are rock solid and have nice features and a very diverse BIOS.
