Default Asus A8N-sli premium or DFI Lanparty of equal quality

Hey peeps, I had a post earlier, "Will these components work for me", and I have decided I will save my money and either go with the ASUS A8N-sli premium or, with some recommendation, a DFI Lanparty board of the same quality. I probably won't be using 2 graphics cards but I would like to keep that option and the rest of my setup is this...

Athlon 64 3700+ sandiego
zalman 7000 heatsink
Antec truepower 550 watt psu
(2 x 1gb) Corsair xms ddr 400
120gb seagate barracuda
eVGA 7800gt 256mb w/ artic cooling silencer
cd rom/dvd rom combo drive
floppy drive

This is my first build and I only plan on dabbling in the overclocking area of the cpu unless I know for sure I can do it on the gpu without blowing it up. I don't go to any lan parties and I mostly play fps games, listen/burn music, general web surfing, and some word processing. I would greatly appreciate some suggestions as I have read in other forums about the DFI Lanparty boards but just cant decide which one based on my experiences. Oh, and I don't won't to spend more than $200 on a mobo unless there is a huge difference. Thanks.
