Which is the Best Motherboards out of these?

Hi

I am currently looking for a motherboard to go in my custom built computer but to be honest im not 100% what to look for in boards, I need my computer for gaming and multi tasking as I download films too, I have so far narrowed it down to 5 which each have links below I would be very grateful if people on here who know what they are talking about would take a look and give their opinion on which is the best, you may notice they are all in the same price range because I'm hoping to spend no more than £150 for a good board with a 775 socket as I have an Intel Q6600 Quad Core CPU. OK here goes:

Or indeed if any of you hardcore gamers out there know any better boards for the price let me know.

Does anyone have a solution to a Dymo LabelWriter 400 powering off? There is no on/off switch so a little blue light is on all the time. In a perfect world, manufacturer would admit to making a mistake in these 'green' times and recall it an substitute a newer model. Optionally, they could provide a separate in-line switch. Anyone have any ideas?

My Dell Dimension computer does not show the edges of the screen when the resolution is set higher.

Viewing the edges of the screen involves moving the mouse pointer to the edge, which reveals the edge like sliding.
