Default DFI Lanparty or ASUS a8n32 MOBO?!!?!

ok so heres the items im looking for:

AMD 64 X2 4400+
western digital wd740gd 74gb raptor 10,000 rpm, sata/150 8mb
Evga 256MB Nvidia GF7800GT SLI
hiper 580W type-R Modular PSU
Windows XP home

im building a GAMING MACHINE, so i may take advantage of SLI

ppl here are strongly against SLI because its a waste of money for very little performance, some of that is true to a certain extent, but u really need a big monitor and good resolution to take advantage of SLI.

im gunna get at least 20" TFT monitor.

so its either

ASUS A8n32/a8n deluxe/ premium

or

DFI lanparty/Ultra-D or watever im not familiar with DFI.

which one is better, ASUS are expensive and DFI is cheaper.

DO both PCI-E lanes running at full 16x in SLI mode with the ASUS A8n32 make any difference.

i may plan to overclock.

Depends on the brand of memory you are going to get

Corsair-->Asus
OCZ or G.Skill or Mushkin-->DFI

a lot of ppl here dont like corsair ram but Asus is built for that ram

on the other hand, OCZ or G.Skill OC better than corsair ram. if u plan on OCing but not an extreme amount, go with the cheaper choice (DFI with OCZ)

G.Skill is the absolute best ram you can get, but OCZ is very close and has a good price vs. performance ratio

i would go with the OCZ, but wuts ur budget on the RAM??

i dont really have a budget, but im building step by step, i have enough money (£430) = ($800) for Case, PSU, mobo,and possibly ram. so G.skill is better than OCZ for Gaming ? id be willing to splash out

all ram is the exact same at default speeds, but in OCing, yes the G.SKill is the best

u have $800 for the case, mobo, ram, and PSU?? wow, that is a high budget, you should be able to get the top of the line stuff
