Default Motherboard / Power Supply

What would be a good motherboard for the build in my sig? Would any of these be a good choice?

The MSI K8N Neo-V is a pretty good board if your not going to OC or don't plan on OC'ing much,As for the DFI you can't go wrong there but you will need a pci-e vid card to go with it

Oh I didn't even notice that the DFI I posted has no AGP. lol

How is this one?

It costs twice as much as the MSI but would it be worth it?

ok, I'll try to budget for the DFI. thanks =)

now for the power supply....I guess Fortron isn't the best so I'll try to go with an Antec one. Which one of these would I need for my setup?

The 430W is only $10 more so I guess I might as well go with that. On the other hand I may only need 380W so why waste $10......IDK somebody help me. lol

The Fortron PSU is better than the Antec ones, and its cheaper
