Please go through this link. I am sure you would get many options to choose . Then pick your mother board as per your Budget. You can buy P5K series Asus. I personally use S3210SHLC . Do not buy this one coz ESX detect only 1 NIC card & it is also costly one. Apart from that you have to flush the BIOS . This board has got inbuilt 2 NIC cards.
thanks for urs response where is the link? :-)
I am facing the same problem . Did you find any motherboard which supports ESX4.1 .
