Default Buying Geforce 6800GS GPU -- What Mobo to buy?

This is the GPU I'll be purchasing: eVGA 256-P2-N389-AX Geforce 6800GS CO SE 256MB.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130271

I'll be picking up an Athlon 64 X2 3800+

What motherboard should I buy to accompany it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I would go for either the DFI lanparty Ultra-D or the ASUS A8N series (avoiding the SE one.)

MSI K8N Neo4-F. The price as right and I couldn't be more satisfied. There's plenty of overclocking options and it's stable as can be.

Asus A8N 5X
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569

it got awesome reviews and it has an nf4 chipset. A good quality brand liek Asus as well. I like the msi board that ryan said too, and the dfi one mentioned. But if i had to chose one this one is the best overall for me.

I chose to go with the Asus A8N 5X, for cost reasons & because it got 5/5 eggs. Thank you all very much for your assistance.

I don't know yet -- mine's still in transit. I'll let you know once it comes in.
