If you plan on SLI'ing in the future, the eVGA 750i FTW

if not, the EP35-DS3R

(thats for low budget, if you can spend 190+ for a board, then let me know, and I'll tell you better boards)

Newegg.com - EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i FTW SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

thats the 750i FTW, I recommend that now, its a so-called "Crippled" version of the 780i boards (no Tri-SLI, but with an 8800gt, I know you're not going to be Tri-SLI'ing anytime soon)

I think people are mentally crippled if they go for a 3 graphics card solution. Unless theyre rolling in it then theyre just a Ba*****s

750i is the sweet spot
