if i were you i would look at the MSI 650i motherboard
its cheap (its usually around 120 bucks)
it has great reviews everywhere ive seen
and there was one site i was looking at that showed that performance wise there really is no difference between the 650 and 680 chipsets

for ram i would go with 2x2gb set also for the sake of future upgradability

The only difference from 650i and 680i is the later is FULLY SLI compatible. If you don't want SLi 680i useless. Go with the MSI.

Or the ASUS if you like the name.
