Default Motherboard recommendation

Accidently posted this in the new techology forum.

I am looking for recommendations as to a good motherboard that has more than 2 SATA headers that will support the Athlon XP 3200+. I intend to run the following items in SATA mode:

Two (2) 74GB 10000 rmp harddrives in Raid 0
One (1) 250GB hardrive
One (1) Plextor 12X DVD R-/R+ RW

Thanks,

m3incorp

Are you planning on overclocking?

Soyo mobos really arent that great...
Abit kicks the pants off of any Soyo...
I don't think I would ever buy one, cause I could find much better from other brands for the same price.

I would definatly look for a motherboard with an n-force2 chipset.
