Default Buying New MotherBoard. Which One?

I am looking to buy a new motherboard. I definitely want a Nvidia nForce2. I am currently looking at these models.

Shuttle AN35N-Ultra
BIOSTAR M7NCD PRO
MSI Delta-L
AOpen AK79D-400VN

I am trying to keep my choices below $80. Please don't start telling me this or that is the best model if it is over $80. I only have so much money to spend and don't need to start going nuts over an awesome motherboard that is out of my dollar range.

The other thing is where is a good place to buy motherboards. I have heard good things about Newegg and I have bought from Tigerdirect before other than that is usually eBay, this time I am going brand new. WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!

Thanks

AOpen is the only brand I've heard of, so it'* my vote. And I wouldn't buy anything this vital to your system through eBay. Go with a real company. I had a great experience when I bought through newegg. Fast and affordable.

If you're in the market for a case to go with it, check out http://www.colorcases.com
