Do you plan on doing SLI? If so it's a good board. If not, get a DFI-Lanparty Ultra-D, and the cutdown of price is only for the socket M2 I believe, so get that.

if ur not goin to SLI, which you should, sli is not good. get a DFI Lanparty Ut Ultra-D, if ur are, then either stick with that Asus or get the DFI Lanparty UT Sli-Dr. as for processor you should get the x2 4400+

buy the ultra-d hands down, and if you change your mind all you need to buy is a #2 pencil lol.

If you want a good CPU (in october) you should get the new AM2 Opteron. Its going to be cheaper than the A64 X2 (and if rumor is true it will also have Reverse Hyperthreading)
