Question Which MoBo?

Hi, this is my first post on this site and I have to admit, I am a complete newb working on my first build. After reading post after post, I have narrowed potential mobo's down to the following 2:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131070

I will be using the C2D E6300 with G. Skill DDR2 800. I intend on attempting to OC eventually. My apologies if I am asking a stupid question that has been asked too many times before, but can anyone suggest which board I should use?

The second one is better but the first one would be just as fine. Also it is better to post your whole system, (if building), so we know what you are building the system around. Also good choice on ram, cheap and high performance, but if planned to overclock I would get the lover timing, but that is really just for over clockers.

If you are saving for direct X 10 I would get a cheap or a little expensive evga card and then do the upgrade program to get the 8800gts or something by just sending the old one before 90 days and pay the difference. Also, on the psu side of things I would go get a hiper. They make great power supplies for small price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817128002

I edited my previous post so reread it.
Btw, the Power supply I posted is Slightly Cheaper and Better in quality compared to the HIper.
