    I have a friend purchasing me some computer equipment from Canadia (cheaper than the UK), and the motherboard i was going to get isn't something they carry.

    My list so far
    Intel Q9400 Processor
    Seagate Barracuda 500GB 32MB Cache *2
    4 GB's of Corsair PC8500 DDR2-1066
    Sapphire ATI RADEON HD 4870

    now i was going to have the mobo being the:
    Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3P

    :hs:

    but they don't carry it in store.

    Can anyone recommend a motherboard for me. Obviously it has to be socket 775 and support the RAM and videocard i've picked.

    Also i've yet to pick the case. What will i be looking at in terms of the PSU to power all this equipment?

    any of the Asus P5Q or Gigabyte EP45 series
    a 500W quality PSU with 24amps on +12V rail, minimum
