Default MB recommendations?

hello, i'm new to this forum, after reading quite a few posts i felt i could get some up to date information on a good motherboard recommendation

here's what i either have or plan on getting for my new system:
(buying pieces every 2 weeks to keep my bank account away from zero )

AMD Athlon 64 FX60
OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 400 Dual Channel Platinum
ENERMAX EG651P-VE FM(24P) ATX 550W Power Supply
Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74GB 10,000 RPM 8MB Cache
eVGA 256-P2-N529-AX Geforce 7800GTX 256MB

the case has 3 - 120 fans to keep decent air circulation

i'm looking for an MB w/ gforce4 SLI , but so far, all i see are new editions, i'm not exactly a fan of updating my bios all the time. was wondering if there was a pretty solid MB which will require minimal effort =)

i'm pretty green as far as building computers, only done a couple, any help will be much appreciated.

thanks in advance !
