Is this a replacement motherboard or one for a new pc? What kind of processor are you going to use on it? What kind of rig are you building? More information would be great.

i have had great success with Newegg. here is a page with all of their 939, multiple PCI-E boards. it depends on what configuration of PCI slots you want, more PCI-E or PCI? i would suggest choosing one that supports AMD Athlon 64x2. the EVGA board looks solid, SLI support.
