Default building new pc HELP

ok i have been looking into buying a new mobo for my new pc i am building. i found a nice combo from tigerdirect for a mobo and 7800 video card for 359.

i know i can get the card from newegg for $284, but i am looking for a nice motherboard for gaming and sli in the future. also the mobo should last me more than 6 months. also i will not be oc too much maybe not at all so i do not need good oc capabilities. also the mobo should be very user friednly since i am not the most experienced person yet. i would like to use AMD dual core probably the 3800, around 2gb of ram, and have plenty of space for sata and pata hdd.

the mobo that i liked a lot was the ASUS A8N-32, because of the dual 16x for sli, its cooling capabilities, also the mobo can easily be flashed without the need of a bootable disk or anything so i guess that is very user friendly. the only problem is that it is very hard to get and the only place i found it available was and the say it will take around 20 days to get to me since they have to order it from ASUS and not from there inventory, i would gladly wait since i ahve no rush really.

i think i have posted pretty much all the info i can give and would greatly apprecate if anyone can help me with this issue.
