Default Which combo is better?

The price of these combo is within $5 of each other so which one would you choose and why?

AMD Athlon64 3200+ Venice core w/ABIT KN8 NVIDIA S939 ATX mobo

or

AMD Athlon64 3000+ Venice core w/DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D mobo

that's what I was thinking. I've heard the DFI LanParty mobo is the best OC'ing board....and the DFI combo is actually the cheaper of the two listed!

A tad slower CPU, but the board makes up for it, IMO. I'm fighting the temptation to buy it right now, I keep telling myself Christmas is coming up, gotta focus on doing for my kids
