Default Motherboard???

Need a motherboard recommendation for a new build. Around the $200 mark.

It will be put in a build with:

Asus 8800gt 512mb
CORE 2 DUO E8400 3.00GHz or CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 2.4G
G.SKILL (2x2gb) PQ 5-5-5-15 DDR2 800
650W ANTEC TRIO PSU
640GB WesternDigital 7200 SATA 16M

Looking for something that has pcie 2.0 and that is future proof (at least as much as it can be, I know most if not all parts are outdated as soon as they are released). Don't mind if it has crossfire or sli or not. For gaming.

Abit IP35 Pro - $180
Newegg.com - ABIT IP35 Pro LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

It doesn't have a PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot, but that extra 2.0 bandwidth isn't even used yet... everything else makes this a great board! Just an option for ya.

That is an insane deal on the P5E mobo! I may have to look into that site more often!

I've never bought from them, but I do remember talking to some guy at DFI and he directed me to that store.
