Wink Best motherboard for the money..

I'm looking to possibly buy a whole set of computer parts for a new build sometime during the summer. I know that I am going to be buying a Core i7 930 and an Antec Twelve Hundred.

Does anyone know of a good, solid motherboard that has some very nice features, will last me at least 5 years without breaking, and costs somewhere around the $200 price point? I don't want to buy a $300 motherboard...just fyi.. :P

Also, I think I am also going to be buying a XFX Radeon 5770. The game that I primarily play is WoW.

Thanks to anyone who replies with an answer to my question. :-)

The Gigabyte X58A-UD3R supports LGA1366, has a ton of features, and costs $209 on Newegg. I really like it, plus it has Gigabyte's Ultra Durable 3 PCB design, onboard energy saving and overclocking features, 10 SATA + 2 eSATA ports, 8 USB on rear panel + 4 inside (2 USB3.0 on rear panel), SATA 6gb/s support, etc.

Prices will definitely change before this summer, but so far the Gigabyte looks like one of the better boards, at that price range.
