Default buying new comp

from ibuypower.com... I have a few questions though.

I dont know which mobo to get, or which video card... I'll just copy/paste the options there are.

Asus A8N5X nForce4 Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0 PCI-E Motherboard [+ $17]
Asus A8N-E nVidia nForce4-Ultra Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0 PCI-E Motherboard [+ $36]
Gigabyte GA-K8NF9 nVidia nForce4 Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, IEEE-1394 PCI-E Motherboard [+ $4]
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce4-SLI Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, IEEE-1394 Dual PCI-E MB [+ $100]
Asus A8N-SLI Premium nForce4-SLI Chipset w/7.1 Sound, Dual Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, IEEE 1394, Dual PCI-E MB [+ $112]

And i dont know which vid card to buy... I dont play super dee duper games... just cs:s and the like. I don't need anything spectacular but still i want it nice... maybe so i can start playin some new games. And I'm not biased to nvidia vs. ati, so point out either...

oh yea, the cpu i'm buying is

Athlon-64 X2 3800+ CPU w/ Hyper Transport Technology

thanks
