Default Better Motherboard?

I was just looking around once again, and saw that the ASUS is also a good motherboard and an easier BIOS than the DFI, I'am new to BIOS so what would you recommend?

ASUS "A8N-SLI Deluxe" nForce4 SLI Chipset Motherboard For AMD Socket 939 CPU -RETAIL

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-517&depa=0

OR

DFI "LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR" NVIDIA nForce4 SLI Chipset Motherboard For AMD Socket 939 CPU

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

Also, are both of these good for the DFI?

Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive, Model WD800JD, OEM Drive Only

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

and

Western Digital Special Edition 80GB 7200RPM IDE Hard Drive, Model WD800JB, OEM Drive Only

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

both HDD are compatible with both mobos

the asus sli mobo has more problems than dfi, and plus, dfi OCs further and is more stable

sata drive > ide drive

DFI and Abit are alot better then Asus. Getting dual HDD is a good idea. I suggest getting both drives as Serial SATA.
