Default Finally narrowed it down, which mobo?

OK i have been taking a lot of time wiht this because i want to get the perfect mobo. I have come down to these boards. The Asus A8V , or the ASRock 939 DUAL Sata2. They both have agp because that is what i need and they both have decent overclokcign features also what i need. So i need to knwo which one is btter i am leaning towards the ASRock one becasue it also supports pci-E for when i upgrade, but Asus is a reliable brand. So which mobo should i get?

lol maybe nobody is responding becasue i didn't pu the links. Sorry here they are.

Asus board:

and

ASRock board:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157081


now maybe i can get some responses on which mobo is better between the two. Again i like the ASus because of the brand and all the features Asus has like crashfree bios and overclocking. But i also like the ASRock one beacuse it has a pci-E card incase i want to upgrade.

Which one should i get?

you do know that Asus makes boards with both 939 and PCI-E then you get the best of both worlds. At the moment i'd go the Asrock solely for the upgradability but that's if I stuck to the choices, in reality i'd get a low end DFI lanparty PCI-E board.
