Default Core 2 Duo motherboard

Hey people,

I'm looking for a good motherboard for my new system should fit the following processor

Core 2 Duo E6300

PCI-E graphics, not the old IDE hard drive interfaces and DDR2 RAM.

I do not really wanna spend alot on the motherboard around £80 perhaps :S

Thanks in advance,

I built a system with a E6300 and a DS3. Great boards but it didn't agree with a ATI X1800 XT.

(Second PC I built which had a Gigabyte board and a ATI card and no longer has the ATI bit in.)

Cisco CCNA, Comptia A+, 1/3 through CCNP

Either the DS3 as mentioned, or the Asus P5W DH Deluxe is also a nice one.
