Default Picking a motherboard.

I am pretty sure that I am going to get a AMD 64bit 3200+ processor and I guess I need to pick out a motherboard to run with it. The last time I got a new computer it was a pentium 166 overclocked to 200mhz....The most bad-arse system in its day (Its still running strong today too ) So most anything I know about computers is a bit dated. So I am asking you to help me pick out a motherboard for this processor.

Thats the link to a bunch of compatible motherboards
Below is a link to the processor that I would like to get.

Thanks for reading all this and your opinion.

EDIT:: I guess I should also ask...Is there a different processor that will give more bang for the buck? Maybe the 2800 processor or Intel??

May I suggest the new Chaintech NForce 4 Ultra with PCI express. You wont have to worry about being out of date all through next year (and some) Chaintech is also a pretty nice brand I believe. I'd sit around and wait for some reviews though.

But yeah if your going 939, you might as well get PCI express now. Thats what I think.
