Default Building New Computer?!?!?!

I am building new system, and planning on using the E6300 Conroe and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131032

that board. I am not moneybags so I can't afford the $270 asus board I want, but this one looks nice. I have 2gigs of Corsair XMS, SATA 250 gig hd, and hopefully SLI'ed 7600XT's. I dont really want to overclock so that isn't an issue. WOuld I be better with a differnt board?

Also, would I be better off just paying the $40 more for the E6400. I play games, video-edit, music-edit and internet mainly. No overclocking.

if you could.. i'd really strive fora 680i chipset, those things are.. beastly, but that's fine for a board if you want it. um.. i'm assuming the memory is ddr2.
and go the extra distance with the cpu, the 6400e is great.
