Any Suggestions for a motherboard?

  RELKEEL 19:10 03 Apr 2007

I'm thinking about a new build and thought a motherboard was the best place to start.

I liked the look of the asus P5B because it supports everything from p4 to quad core and will take DDR2 up to 8GB.

Is this a good place to start or has anyone got a better suggestion in the same price range. Bearing in mind I'm very much an amateur.

Spreadsheets, Down loading and burning music, a little video editing(minimal) so firewire an advantage. Maybe the odd bit of gaming nothing fancy.

The differcult bit of building a PC is making sure a processor is compatible with the motherboard and memory.
If this is a bit daunting for you then you can consider a motherboard bundle like the ones from Novatech or one of these click here or
