EVGA makes nice boards and has legendary CS. If you want to feel more secure, any Asus or Gigabtye x58 is great.

You should also consider adding a CPU cooler, because the stock Intel coolers are not very good and they are noisy. Good, reasonably priced coolers are Hyper 212, Xigmatek Dark Knight, Noctua NH-U12P, Zalman CNPS10X, and others.
