DFI lanparty ultra D. But you might as well go for SLI motherboards, as they will have more features, even if you don't go for the stupid SLI route.

Are you going to have PCIE graphics card? As that is the future slot.

This is £5 over that budget: MSI K8N Neo4-F nForce4

Same price: Gigabyte K8NF-9 nForce4


(Sorry to keep recommending over budget - how about saying how much you have and we might be able to bring it back on target else where?)

I would personally go with the MSI at the same price, but it can't be a bad motherboard.

Go for it if you can find it cheaper than the MSI though.
