Default Motherboard

I am going to be building a new computer soon. I think I am going to be getting the Amd Athlon XP 2800+ - 3200+... I'm still deciding on that. What do you think would be the BEST motherboard that can support these processor's, and what would be the best for the money??

ASUS, Abit, Gigabyte, they all will have their pros and cons. I think you should decide what you want in a motherboard, then decide how much you want to spend. Finally look fo a mobo that fits within both and buy it.

Personally, i like ASUS.

EVGA 8800 GTS Video Card
Corsair XMS 2 x 1gig RAM
