I have my 2nd Gigabyte K8N series. This and my first one were really stable, yet inexpensive.

The Asus, DFI, MSI, and Gigabyte with NF4 chipsets are all pretty good in my opinion. No matter what you get, just make sure that the chipset uses passive cooling.

I'd go with the MSI K8N Neo4-F, or the platinum edition if you have some extra money and want firewire.

Or go with a gigabyte motherboard, one with the passive cooling like Elbatrop said, just make sur eyou have good ventilation.
