Ok thanks and what is the difference between having a cheap motherboard and a pricey one please?

Apart from the O/C abilitys :p

Well, since the motherboard is the main component of the computer, the better of a motherboard you have, the more stable your system will be overall. It will also support more features like RAID or SLI/Crossfire (2 graphics cards).

The more expensive one I gave you actually has 3 PCI Express slots. You can have SLI and still have another PCI Express slot for a physics card.
