Default Any recommendations on Mobo?

I am looking to build a new PC, primarily for gaming. Anyone have a brand that they like better than others? Price range is <250. I have been looking at this one EVGA nForce 730a Motherboard CPU Bundle - AMD Phenom X4 9550 Quad Core Processor 2.20GHz OEM at TigerDirect.com Any thoughts are appreciated.

I Luv EVGA. You should checkout Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! instead of TigerDirect

Looks like TD is trying to unload some OLD stock there.

Put another $25 with it and get this combo:

AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDX920XCGIBOX - Retail,
BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX 128M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail


EVGA has great mobos, but this Biostar is very well rated here on the forums. The 920 Phenom II will outperform the 9550 like nobody's business... plus it will overclock extremely well.
