Need advice from techily knowledgeable peoples

Okay, so I'm going to build myself a PC again. Three hard drives (going to run software RAID-5 on Linux). I'm not planning to run any high-powered games, but I do occasionally fire up the GIMP for some image editing, and may fool around with audio (sound editing, composing, sequencing). The main purpose, as with my current computer, will be web browsing (and a little P2P, don't tell anyone!). I'd like it to be fast and to have plenty of memory, but it doesn't have to be bleeding edge or anything. Multiple processors could be nifty but are hardly essential. I probably won't bother with a separate video card and will just use whatever onboard video I get.

So, my question is, can anyone recommend any motherboards they think are good?
