Default Most Reliable MotherBoard on the Planet

I currently have an Abit AN8 SLI Motherboard that is headed out to lunch and need to replace it with something a bit more reliable. I'd like to save the parts that I am already using,

Socket 939 AMD Athlon 64 3200+ venice core
Abit Ati Radeon x700pro PCI
2x512MB Corsair ValueSelect 184-pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered

I'd like... no NEED the motherboard to extremely user friendly. Something that does not need a specific PSU to run it, something that has been well tested and has all the bugs worked out of it. Something that I can download ALL the drivers right away and plug the stuff in and it will work straight up with no problems and/or troubleshooting involved.

Thanks so much.

Looking at this...

Mostly good review from what I've seen. A few problems with RAM but nothing huge. I think I'm going to go with it unless someone has something outstanding.
