Core 2 Duo - 2GB DDR2 - 7950GX2 - Motherboard Help Please

  1. Can anyone recommend a motherboard that will work with the following hardware.

    Core 2 Duo E6600

    G.Skill 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-pin 6400

    Video Card:
    XFX 7950GX2 1GB (overclocked by XFX)

    Hard Drive:
    Seagate Barracuda 320GB 16MB Cache Sata 3.0GB/s

    Will be running Windows XP Home OEM.

    I have already purchased all this hardware, just having a little trouble finding a motherboard that supports all of it. From what I understand some motherboards will only allow 1 GPU on the 7950GX2 to run, and a lot of motherboards only support 5400 Ram, or they don't fully support 6400 Ram and are picky about the voltage of my G.Skill.
    Do I need a Nvidia Chipset?
    Also, I should say that I probably wont be overclocking.

    Help with finding a motherboard please.

    Thank you.
