Such desktop boards are hard to find because they assume you have a
dedicated GPU. You could try a server board like this one, but its video
chipset is quite basic, so don't expect 3D stuff to work on it. It also
has some additional features you may not want, like IPMI and limited
number of extension slots :)

Corsair is one of them, but they are relatively pricy.

I had good experience with Antec and Chieftec. Any supply greater than
500W made by these vendors would do, but you should calculate your power
consumption to be on the safe side..
