Default Need a new motherboard

Well after a year and a 1/2 with good and bad, but mostly bad times with my Asus P5GD1 motherboard, I've decided I'm going to get rid of this P.O.S. motherboard and get something different. Anybody got any suggestions?

Here's the specs that the board must match:

ATX or Micro ATX form factor
Socket T 775
DDR memory(must support at least 2 GB), NOT DDR2
1 PCI-Express x16 slot
2 PCI slots
1 IDE controller
2 SATA 1.5 ports minimum (4 ports would be better).

Keep in mind, these are the MINIMUM's that I need. Don't have any cash to upgrade to DDR2, SATA 3.0, etc.



BIOSTAR TA790GXB Mobo - AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz Quad-Core Black Edition Win 7 Pro 64-bit
OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB DDR2 800 Dual Channel -
Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler - Antec Truepower 2.0 480W PS
Western Digital Raptor 37GB SATA HDD - Seagate 120GB SATA HDD
Plextor PX716A DVD-R/RW - LG DVD-ROM - Hauppage PVR-250 TV Tuner - Antec Silver Aluminum Case

hey you might want to give the ECS rs400a a look. i know its ECS and a budget board but its never done me wrong, plus it has 4 SATA ports.

if you're overclocking though, i would suggest going a different route, however.
