One question about the motherboard, does it already have the Firewire, or do I need to get one separately, cause I don't see it in the specs, I do need Firewire since I occassionally plan to post some youtube videos.

It doesn't. But if you want one with a Firewire port, I would suggest:
Newegg.com - ABIT IP35 LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Is this mobo Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3P Rev 2.0 LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Ultra Durable 2, Ultra Cooling Intel Motherboard - Retail worth the $30 extra over the one from ABIT

I decided to go with ABIT mobo, just waiting for 2900PRO to come out. As we speak the damage is $1100 plus whatever the price of the card which will be $250-300 range, plus up to $100 in shipping charges (probably less, monitor which is already ordered has free shipping), so I will be under $1500.
Thanks to everyone that helped.
