Why are you going from AMD to Intel?What do you use your pc for?There is a wider range of motherboard on socket 939

Is there any particular reason why you are going for an ASRock m/b? I've read and heard from several users who don't regard them too highly.

Gigabyte for me, especially if you buy Intel. I have a GA8I945P Pro. The nearest that I can find on Dabs (which is where I got it from in November) is the PG version which is slightly cheaper. click here

Seems to be basically the same spec, but the Pro version has just been discontinued.

I notice that you have picked boards that use a 915 chipset. The 945P is the better choice.

Inside your budget

Asus m/b for me (or Gigabyte, as ade.h suggests, above).
However, this looks really nice and within your budget:
