Default New Motherboard

I need to decide on a new mobo, and cant figure out which one. I think im either gonna get the MSI K8N Neo4 or the Asus A8N Sli. I know the asus is very common but I heard it is somewhat unstable. I looked on newegg, and there are a few different versions of the MSI and I dont know what to get. I want PCI-E and SLI, but there are 2. A normal version and a platinum version. Also, on the Asus, there is a deluxe version, and a platinum version. What are your thoughts / opinions?

Antec Super Lanboy
AMD 64 3800 S-939 Newcastle
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum
eVGA 6600GT
1.5 GB pc 3200
Viewsonic 22\" Widescreen 1680x1050
Logitech MX518
Coming Soon: Athlon 64 4000 San Diego/Z-5500/G7/Vista

DFI Lanparty SLI-DR is the best

The MSI is a decent board, however Asus are total crap.
