Default Which Motherboard! or...

So iam down to deciding which motherboard to buy for my new computer

the two Motherboards that i was looking at were the:

Evga Nforce 680I Sli LGA775 Conroe Atx DDR2 2PCI-E16 2PCI SATA2 Raid Sound Gblan 1394 Motherboard


Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 ATX LGA775 Conroe P965 DDR2 PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 3PCI SATA2 GBLAN Audio Motherboard


now would it be wise to get the better 680i mobo for the $120 (i'm not planning on using SLI)
Im wondering are there going to be other uses for an second PCI-E slot or should i save my money and get the cheaper one.
Iam inclined to just go with the cheaper one to save money
but the features that the 680i offer ( plays 1066mhz RAM) (better sound card) sound good.
is it worth the extra money or is there another Mobo that you would suggest

thankyou for your comments.

Yes. The extra price isn't really worth it at all.
