Default Need a Recommendation for a good mobo??

CPU I have is athlon 64 4000+ socket 939

Needs:
-To have PCI-E slot and work with a geforce 7600 gt video card
-Dual channel ddr memory support
-At least 2 other pci slots
-I plan on having 3 120mm fans in my case(but not sure that this has anything to do with the mobo so if not disregard this "need")
-Simply to be a good reliable board

Would like: Gigabit ethernet, firewire, easy for first time builder to use

I was hoping to get one around the $60-$65 range, but will go higher if thats what it takes for a good board.

Check out Asus' line of Socket 939 boards at www.newegg.com. Find one you think fits your needs and check back here to see if anyone has experience with it.

Here are the three boards I am looking at now.

ASUS A8N5X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

BIOSTAR TForce6100-939 Socket 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

ECS KN1 Lite 1.0A Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Which board is the best?

I'd go with the Asus personally. They're better known for good quality.

Glad you guys chose between the biostar and asus because the ECS just went out of stock...

So whats better about the Asus? I know that I can't RMA that board with newegg for some reason if its doa or has any problems.
