Default 680i... which one?!

alright.. now that i've got most everything done.. its down to the mobo... and i'm obviously chosing a 680i, as its the best SLi motherboard out at the moment...

with that said... which one should i get... i've been looking at evga.. and i notice there's 2.. one is about 160.. the other is about 200... what is the difference between the two???

I believe the A1 version is the one that will or already does have support for the 1333FSB.

Does EVGA make good motherboards? I've had my eye on that EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1... but the price is a little too high...
