Default Mobo help

I have a general idea of what i want but i'm looking for a slightly less expensive alturnitive.
Right now i'm looking at the MSI NForce 4 Platinum
I'm planning on using a AMD 64 3700, GeForce 7800 GT, 2gb DDR dual ch. RAM.
So.... the question....
Can you recamend a MOBO with similar stats to the one above that is cheaper but not a necicarily low quality? Maybe another brand like GigaByte...

MSI K8N Neo4-F
It's a very well known motherboard on these forums, and probably the best motherboard under 150$ for no overclocking.

another well trusted brand is ASUS, however, ASUS is quite expensive, the brand that i would like to point out is ASrock, they are ASUS' budget brand, i wouldnt normally recommend them but they are very good value and high quality if you are not OCing

MSI K8N Neo4-F. I just bought one. It rocks. And don't tell me it doesn't overclock. I won't believe you.
