Default Help: Best Overall motherboard for AMD and Intel (Under $100)

I am still a newbie, so I am not sure which cpu to go with: Amd or intel

Which one is cheaper?Am looking for something comparable with intel q6600 2.4ghz

And so for the motherboard which one is the best overall (under $100)
One for intel and one for Amd.

or do you guys recommend to get a more expensive one? (based on experience.)

Ya those are stripped down versions of the Abit Ip35-e, so stick with the EP35-DS3L or the regular p35-DS3L

amd holds the market at low budget stock...intel whoops on them when you overclock their e2xxx or even the e1200 celeron for a standard internet e-mail machine. Overclock them even a little bit and they beat their amd competitor.
