You forgot the Asus A8V-E Deluxe (there's a gaggle of A8V varieties, so be 
careful; the A8V, A8V Deluxe and A8V K8T800P Deluxe are all plain PCI 
boards). There's PCI-E x16 and two x1 slots (so what are you going to put 
_in_ those slots? or is it just for gaming so the x1 slots are useless?).

The via onboard sata RAID can be useful; some boards also have a Promise sata 
raid as well. Me, I prefer SATA, if only for the simpler cabling. YMMV.

Anyway, whichever you get, do add it to the list of supported motherboards at
