Too general, you gotta mention Socket type because it varies. If it's an Intel cpu, I'd say Asus.

Sorry, s775, new chipsets, etc.

Also, the reason I said Intel is because I know a lot of people who build custom comptuers but dont overclock buy Intel motherboards.

Yeah, Intel or Asus boards are gonna be the best bet for non overclocking, just a cheap-o 50 or 60 dollar board is all you need really.

Intel locks the BIOS settings for overclock the same way PC manufacturers like Dell and HP do.

My vote goes for the Asus P5P800-SE board, supports the newest processors (presler, 6xx ect) based on the proven springdale chipset (865)

Though if you need PCIe, stick with asus, the intel boards are overpriced for what you get.
