Well are you going for a 940 pin or 939 pin? If you head over to http://www.newegg.com, go to the motherboard section, then use the 939/949 pin filter (whichever one your getting) it will show a list of motherboards that are compatible and plenty of reviews. Head over to http://www.tomshardware.com to check what your getting as well

DON'T GET SOCKET 940!!!

it requires registered ram, which is a waste of time and money

for the best results, get socket 939 (you can also get socket 754, but you wont get stuff like dual channel RAM)
