Asus P5Q-Deluxe.
I just replaced my trusty Abit IP-35 Pro with one (haven't updated my sig. yet).
No setup issues, the board is still on the original 0605 bios and works great.
Good layout, dual bios with replaceable socketed bios chips, a rarety these days. Lots of settings in the bios to play with.
Usually on the weekly NCIX sale in the $200 range.

If you don't want 2 extra SATA ports and don't worry about the northbridge not being cool piped, get the P5Q-E instead.

Yes, another good board, about $40 less than the Deluxe.
