Default MOBO upgrade

Ok so I am building a new system, I have everything other than the MOBO, what kind should I look for, my setup will be AMD Phenom II 940 BE X4 processor, 4GB DDR2 Memory, running crossfire ATI Radeon HD 4850 cards, 650 watt PSU, will be adding a blu-ray down the line, 640GB hard drive. What is a good option to build upon.

Yes I already have the other parts, I don't need anything super expensive.
