Default New Motherboard

I posted a topic a few weeks ago about buying a new motherboard, but some things came up that blew the bank account, and put a new motherboard on the backburner. So my PC has been out of commission for a while now. Anyways, I have gathered the money and im ready to get a new board, but im still unsure of which one to get. Just for the info, my 3200+ Chip is Socket 754.

So here are the boards I looked at, can you tell me which one you like, and what you think my best bet would be?

1. DFI LANPARTY UT NF3:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136147

2. ASUS K8N-E DELUX:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131498

3. ASUS K8V SE DELUX:

4. MSI K8T NEO-V

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130498

The are the few that looked most appealing to me. The customer reviews on that DFI board, say that some people have had trouble with 6800 Series Cards, I don't know whether they're true or not, could just be incompitant computer users, I don't know. There was a Gigabyte board I saw that looked decent as well, but I cant find it now. Either way, could you give me your opinions on these boards, or recommend on that would be good for my current setup. (I am not going to move to Socket 939, not yet at least, so please don't mention it) Thanks for the help

I am probably going to go with the DFI board, cause I prefer NForce over VIA. I can't find the MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum board anywhere on Newegg, but its definatly a board I would concider.

Im running Socket 754, not 939. So I guess the DFI board is what im going with.
