Most Powerful motherboard Please ?

Hi,

Usually a gamer and a filesharer and movie watcher etc. (Win XP.) Now I'm learning video editing and my pc is not up to the job.
So - I have to save some money - what is the best or most powerful motherboard and Chip combo please?? Would it be a dual chip motherboard. Any advice or opinions would be very useful.
I'm currently using my old AMD Athlon 900 Mhz which is easily too slow for video compression and other things. My experience goes up to an Asustech a7v8x with 1.8 Ghz. (which i gave to my mum). Now looking to get the most powerful (Windows) workhorse i can to do multiple tasks at the same time.
Please let me know - and thanks in advance.
Sam.
