Depends on your budget really....

ASUS MB M5A78L-M/USB3 AMD AM3+ uATX 90-MIBG70-G0EAY00Z

Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 Motherboard Phenom II Socket AM3 AMD 880G RAID Gigabit Ethernet (rev 3.1)

ASRock 880GMH-USB3 Motherboard AMD Socket AM3 AMD 880G + AMD SB710 ATX Gigabit LAN (Integrated AMD Radeon HD 4250 Graphics)

.... all these are full of features and cost around £50

ASUS has good boards, i have a ASUS M5A78L-MLX PLUS and it works really well in my board and supports cpu's that are AM3+ socket for FX/Phenom II/Athlon II/Sempron 100 series processors and supports up to 8gb of ddr3 ram at 1866(OC)/1600(OC)/1333/1066MHz,ECC and non-ECC and unbuffered memory. With 1xPCIe2.0 x 16,2xPCIe 2.0 X1 and a 1 X PCs slots. Also has 10XUSB 2.0 ports. Cost me 59.99$usd heres a link so you can take a look at it. It's a really board imho.
