Default Mobo choices..

Hello all this is my first post and I hope it is in the right section.

I am currently upgrading my PC and stuck on motherboards. I have read alot of reviews but I'm kind of skeptical about this whole mobo thing. In alot of them the mobo's were DOA and had to be sent back. Is that normal for motherboards?

Now I need a mother board and want to spend in the 70-80$ range. I do play many games and know im not going to get a hardcore gaming Mobo for that price but its an upgrade from my Prefabs. Now can you reccomend some Mobo's for the price I said. I was looking at the ASUS A8N5X. Looked decent but i dont know much. Can you reccomend any more? thanks!

P.s. Oh yeah has to be socket 939 for my AMD A64 3500+
