Default Upgrading Motherboard

Ok, so basically, long story short, I've been screwed over quite a bit and screwed myself over quite a bit in the last few months when it comes to computers.
Which has pretty much ended me up with and Asus P5KPL/1600 mobo, an E8400, and 2 XFX 8800GTs.
For what I want to do, the mobo is crap and I wanna upgrade, links to newegg would be useless becaue I'm in Australia, but I don't know of any good Aussie sites :S
So yeah, ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

My mobo, XFX 780i, is a decent overclocker (which the E8400s are great for, I have mine @ 4GHz), and does triple-SLI so you'll be able to run both 8800GTs.

Motherboards - nForceŽ 7 series - nForceŽ 780i SLI

It would probably be a good choice for ya. No idea on Australian sites, though.

That board looks great, and unless someone can give me a good reason not to buy it, I'll go for that one.
Thanks mate.
