    Hi unix443,

    Here is a motherboard that I think you will like, very good quality and with the latest Ports etc. Very overclock-able and not too expensive.

    I admit I like Asus products, having had such good luck with them. You can get a suitable board from Asus for about 129 dollars if you want to give up a few minor things. But one thing I also like about this one is the USB bios flashback. There are other features to be sure.

    Anyway I hope this gets you on the right track! Good Luck!
