Google I must admit for a liking of Asus boards in particular with Gigabyte as my second choice.

Thanks gengiscant. If anyone has experience of a specific board meeting my needs I'd like to hear about it.

I forgot to say on my op that some reasonable over clock options would be useful

Decent board here but a bit over your budget however appears to have most of your requirements (if you are prepared to sacrifice USB3) - read the reviews. Can't advise any further on it.enter link description here

northumbria61: thanks for the suggestions. It does seem to meet all my needs and I've never had a problem with Asus in the past (not necessarily a good reason for continuing to use them!). Does anyone have any direct experience with this board? I'll tick your suggestion as the answer to the thread, but if anyone else has any alternatives please feel free to post.
