Default New mobo for overclocking?

I think its time to get a new mobo and i wanna overclock my 2500 to 3200 speeds and my 9800 sooner or later? Which would be the best for this? What about Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe? That any good? Gigabyte GA-7N400, that also? which one? Both about the same price and thats the kinda price i wanna go for.

This is a good stable board-

Abit makes really stable boards for overclocking, also this one may be better-

It is on sale too!
