Default Your opinion on the best intel mobod for under $200.

I am going to build another computer for myself this time and was just curious about other people's opinions on the best board for under $200. I am not a gamer and may or may not overclock. I do video editing and will have an e-sata backup so would possibly like the e-sata port. Not a must though. I would like to have a firewire port and many sata hookups. Also at least 2-3 usb connectors on the board. I want a great quality board. Thanks.
If you don't want to reply because there are other topics on this then don't reply. Thanks again.

i guess the pb5-e is pretty good with 4 on-board usb

or maybe the GIGABYTE S3 for almost half of your budget (no raid controller and no integrated video, otherwise seems like the same as DS3)

also the lovable DS3

Actually it's a piece of crap. 750w for $109? Definitely absolute ****.

How do you know it's a piece of crap? Have you used it?
