Asus P4C800
or
Abit IC7

Both respectable brands, and very reliable.

P4C has more features for the money.

IC7 doesn't have ICH5R southbridge.

If you want an equivalent motherboard, you need the IC7G.

My bad... I blame my allergy meds.

IC7 does has the ICHR5... though it doesn't have onboard ethernet and the additional SI3112 SATA controller. If I remember correctly, doesn't come with a Serriell SATA adapter.
