I'm planning on building myself a new system for gaming. I chose out a moderately good graphic card and a processor (things within my meager price range), but I'm stuck on what motherboard to choose. Truthfully, I know nothing about motherboards... I did some research on motherboards but if anything it messed me up even more.
The video card I chose out is: ATI Radeon X700 w/256M DDR w/TV & DVI (PCI EXPRESS)
And the CPU is: P4 3.0 GHz (630) 800MHz LGA 775 (2MB Cache)

Now, what motherboard would be compatible with these two things? I can't afford anything too expensive, and I don't want any fancy extras on it. It doesn't need any super audio chips because I have a good sound card in my current system... I just know I'll need at least 6 USB thingies (ports? slots?) on it. Also, it should be good enough so I can eventually (hopefully) upgrade the video card, etc.

Can anyone please help me out? =(
