Default A good Gigabyte motherboard?

Hi all, only me 2nd post here. In my 1st post I had a couple recommendations for motherboards. I've used Gigabyte on my last few builds and really liked them. Are there any good Gigabyte boards out to pair up with a

4GB Corsair Ram (2x2gbs)
500GB Seagate
Sony Sata DVDrw
Antec Truepower Trio 650Watt PSU
in a Centurion 5 Case.

figured I'd list out all items just in case it makes a difference Doubt I will be using Sli ever but if the board has it I guess that's not a bad thing.

Need more info please just ask

This is what I have (just built this computer a week ago)
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Dynamic Energy Saver Ultra Durable II Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I use it with a Q6600 and an 8800GT and I have no complaints so far. Also not too expensive

the ds3l is the same board, but without raid support and less usb/sata ports.
