Definitely one of the p35 boards. I'd go with the abit model that's got the ICH9R.

 

Or if you're really looking at keeping it cheap a DFI Blood Iron. Very good board but, no Xfire possibility.

The Gigabyte P35-DS3L or R is a very nice choice...the L has 4 sata ports while the R has 6 and has a few more options....like supporting ddr2-1066 in a overclocked state...;)
