Default need a good motherboard for intel quad

hey guys,
Can anyone recommend a good motherboard for a intel quad core q9550?
I have a nvidia 9800 gtx+
Corsair dominator 4GB 1066mhz bus so it needs to have a fast memory bus and front side bus. I will not be doing sli so it doesn't need to be a sli board.
I'm think about getting a Asus P5n-t.

Thanks guys

Since you're not SLI'ing you don't have to consider an nVidia boards, plus X3[4]8 and p35 boards are better anyways.

Check out the Biostar I45 if you're on a short budget, or check out the Asus Rampage Formula
