Do you plan on doing crossfire or SLI?
If not, then this board would be great.

Well I have 149 usd, because I rma'd a part and they gave me a refund instead of the board because they had stopped carrying that board.

Yeah, but no need to spend the entire budget, trust me, this is a very good board if you have no intentions of SLI or crossfire.

Here are my parts:

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale 1.8GHz LGA
OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W Power Supply
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (four sticks totaling 4g ram)
EVGA 256-P2-N625-AR GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card.

Would it go good with them and be just as good as any of the other boards I linked?

Don't get the one james_8970 has posted above in Post #6, it's an AMD motherboard. He must have made a mistake in linking it.

I would recommend the Gigabyte he posted in #2, I have a similar board and am very happy with the performance :)

Wow, I mixed up my threads big time here......
Yes, get the P35-DS3L that I suggest in post #2, it's compatible with everything you have.
Please note that I only has one PCIe port, so you will not be able to run SLI.
