Welcome
It depends what your needs are. Do you need or want SLI, because if you don't ever plan on getting more that 1 GPU it would be a waste of money IMO. And that money could be spent better elsewhere.
These are really solid boards based on the P35 chipset and are considerably cheaper-
Abit IP35-E - £55

Gigabyte GA-P35_DS3L - £58

What other parts are you planning on getting?

I had this motherboard and it failed me twice Like what coffeejunky said it depends on what your needs are. IMO there isnt really a decent nvidia based chipset board out atm. (Even the EVGAs have issues.) So I would stick to an intel based chipset board.
