best budget board you can pretty much get if you don't want all the extras like dual ethernet ports, additional SATA controller,Firewire etc.

NathanM's board that he recommended rocks. I got mine for 70 bucks when it was on sale on newegg. It overclocks like a charm, but doesn't sacrifice quality.
