hardCOREware likes DFI’s NF4 Infinity.  Unlike their LAN Party series, this board gets the job done with a minimum of embellishments.  It handles the latest Athlon’s, will overclock fairly well, and costs less than $100!
“We have soft spot for motherboards that offer nothing more than the basics, but are superb overclockers and performers. When the price is low and performance is high, these motherboards always get our attention. DFI sought out to do just that with their Infinity line of NFORCE4 boards. While they may not look as snazzy as their Lanparty boards, they are certainly worth your attention if you care more about performance than flashy lights and glowing colours.”
