I've heard good things about Abit, but you wouldn't be too wrong for going Asus as well. Its all personal preference. The mobo isn't going to have that big of impact on performance unless you go with a cheap noname mobo.

I would suggest ABit, only because I feel ASUS has gone down the drain as far as quality goes in the last year or two. You'll find absolutely no tech support from them either. Well....if you speak taiwanese you will do alright

Go with the AV8-3rd Eye if you are still using AGP.

If you are going to be using PCI-E, then go with the AX8. But keep in mind that the AX8 features the K8T890, therefore it does not support an SLI configuration as you need the K8T890 PRO to achieve this.

The K8T890 PRO has not yet been released.
