Default Which Mobo?

Which would be the best for a decent games machine and OCing?
Lan Party ultra D or Asus A8n sli Premium?

Using 7900gt and a dual core. Either the opteron 165 or Athlon 4200+, still havent decided yet...

For OCing I'd take the Lanparty, but if you want to go SLI (I don't know why you'd ever want to though) then of course get the Asus.

So yeah get the Lanparty.

Thanks very much for your help

Lanparty def. for OCin. for CPU either get the opty 165 or 3800+, the 4200+ is a waste since the .2 ghz can easily be made up with a same OC.
