Default ASUS M2N SLI deluxe mobo question

Newegg.com - ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

I'm looking at getting this mobo but I won't be running SLI just yet, wouldn't it be fine to just have 1 gfx card in it and disable the other pci xpress slot

you dont need to disable the other slot it would only be "enabled" when you plug another GFX card into it

well the power connector into the motherboard is a 8 pin connection, i have a 500w dynex that has the older 4 pin power connection. Are there any mobos that somebody can help me find that are good for gaming and would support my hardware. Needs to be a AM2 socket board and what is the best mobo company? ASUS.. MSI.. eVga?
