Default Picking a new LGA775 board.

I need a new board because my old one croaked. I don't know what I should pick so I thought I should put it up here. My budget is $190 canadian. I would like to buy canadian as well. The catch is that I don't have any video cards. So I need a motherboard with integrated graphics OR a board and a simple video card good enough to play World of warcraft and other games at low settings in the $190 budget. So far I have chosen this grouping but i wanted some input.

The motherboard: NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte EP43-UD3L ATX LGA775 P43 FSB 1600 OC 1PCI-E 2PCI DDR2 SATA2 HD Sound GBLAN Motherboard - GA-EP43-UD3L In Canada.

The video card: NCIX.com - Buy Powercolor Radeon HD 4670 PCs 750MHZ 1GB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 HDMI DVI VGA PCI-E Video Card - AX4670 1GBK3-PH In Canada.

Before rebates + s/h and taxes : $190.43
With mail in rebates: $170.43

Any input?

If I were going with a 775 system I would take a look in the Buy and Sell forum here. There are some good deals in there for both mobos and video cards. Worth a look.
