Yes, it is worth the extra money, because if you want to go SLI in the future, you just saved your self a good 100-200 dollars on a replacement mobo.

Definately go with the nf4 mobo with the SLI, you might be selling yourself short though on the cpu. If I were you I wouldnt get anything less than 3500

I researched sli myself and with the help of others i also decided it is perhaps the better choice for future flexibility. Yes i agree, your cpu needs some tweaking there. If you can afford a little more, you may want to look at some comparisons for cores for amd's as well and may want to upgrade it a bit.

You can get the cheaper mobo and do the mod witha #2 pencil to make it a sli mobo. -10 % of the performance.
