Default Which Mother board

So, now I have almost all the parts for my new system. So far I got folowing:

AMD Athlon 64 X2, 4800+
eVGA e-GeForce 7900GTX SuperClocked
Western Digital Raptor WD360GD, 10000rpm, 36GB, Serial-ATA
Western Digital Raptor WD360GD, 10000rpm, 36GB, Serial-ATA
Will work in Raid 0
Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty

So far I have seen good reviews of those two boards:

MSI K8N Diamond Plus
Asus A8N-SLI Premium

So, which is the best board for my components. You can suggest other boards too:-)

Even if you wont be using SLi just yet then atleast you will have a board which will allow for you to add another card at a later date. The asus SLi Premium is the best choice.

Yeah but remember with SLi you have to use the exact same cards together. Thats why i went to Crossfire because you can have say an X1800XT and then later on a X1900XTX (the cards dont have to be the same)
