I'm not very good with your form of currency, so I can't help much there. I do want to point out, that neither of the motherboards support SLI, since they're AMD chipsets. You'll either need to go to an ATI card for future crossfire support, or find a different motherboard, with an Nvidia chipset that supports SLI. The 8800GT will work with them, but you will have no support for SLI in the future.

In my opinion the third one is out of the question since you pay 50 more for the same frequency, unless you're planning to make a further OC and the water cooling will be handy, but in that case why not build yourself and OC?

OC'ing isn't as hard as you think. There's tons of guides out there, and people on here would gladly help you if you needed it.

Yeah, the only thing you're paying the premium for is for them to install the CPU and go into the BIOS and up the "multiplier" on the CPU. Also the 3rd one is more, 'cause it comes with a self-contained "CPU water cooling" solution. While the idea was good, most self-contained water coolers are not properly executed when designed and built. I've actually looked at the Corsair H-50, 'cause someone local was selling one. They do seem to do a good job, but a TRUE 120 or similar would do just as good, if not better for around the same price.

Since I can comment on the price, I'd have to say they're not as bad as I expected they'd be, however I'd have to reiterate what others have said and say that the watercooling isn't worth it and you should just OC it yourself.
