Default what to do. (amd & mobo Q)

First a smal storie...

Ill had an abit kv7.
With s-ata isues. had to send it to the dealer.

Thei found some error with the s-ata part of the mobo.
And the waranty covered it. Thei wrote that thei are sending a asus A7V880 coz the abit was not in stock. Thei also claimed that this was a better mobo.

But wheni recived the pack. it did not contained a mobo. But a WD raptor s-ata 74.GB hdd.
A hdd i want and costs more than twice the price of a mobo.

So ill keep my mouth shut. And keeps the hdd.

So to my Q.

Shud i buy a asus A7V880 or is it other mobo's more fit ?

I have a amd xp 3200 400 cpu.
2X1024 ddr ram. pc3200

And know a 34gb raptor and a 74 gb raptor.
gona laiter add a 320 gb hdd. (cane i use bought s-ata and ata or those the ata2 gets disabeled when i enabel the s-ata. )

usb 2 and sound shud be on the mobo. lan ofc. and perhaps firewire. (not imp. coz firewire cards are cheap)

whats the best mobo.. Asus? Abit? others?
Wil prob not overclock... (well easy to say now...)
