You said you are going with the Gigabyte but be aware that it DOES NOT support Crossfire so you won't have that upgrade option. I would support the above asus that was recommended.

Foxconn may seem to have attractive products but they also have horrible support. ASRock is the budget arm of Asus so I would recommend this for it's good quality and low price.

ASRock P45XE $94.99

You may want to spend a little more though for something with better quality and more support like this Gigabyte board. The only thing I don't like about it is their easy tune software and would recommend you change your settings in the BIOS if you want to over clock it.

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P $136.99

That looks like a very nice mb with lots of expandability options and the copper heatpipes that will help keep it cool if you begin overclocking .

Nice build
