Which of these shuttle mobos will support my barton 2500+?

Can anyone tell me which of these mobos would be the best to get for my barton 2500+?

I can get any of them but the last one. Shuttle came recommended from a rather knowledgable computer guy, but I was wondering about your all's thoughts. I recently had planned on buying at biostar, but was discouraged from it, and was pointed in this direction. These seem good, but I'm not sure-I'm pretty new to this stuff. This is the case I plan on buying:

It is a 400 watt power supply, which should be pretty good I think. I've got two hdds-both WD, one 60 gigs and the other 2.5 [swap]. I've got a cdrw and will be buying a dvd rom, and will be getting my friend's radeon 9200. I've got 512 MBs ddr pc333 PNY Technologies, plan on geting another gig later.

Does all this look sufficient?

I would recommend going to a hardware site like,,
theres plenty and reading the reviews on the barton compatible boards.
And then making a well informed decision based on what you know rather than asking for advice from people who may or may not know.

To me it looked like all the motherboards are pretty much the same abeit a couple of bells and whistles more or less.You either got the VIA or the nforce2 chipset.Pick one.
BTW - I got a biostar motherboard (just went in the store and said give me a nforce2 board - was in a hurry) and that works just fine.
