Default motherboard choice

Hi everyone. I am building a new machine and this is what I have so far:
core 2 duo E6600 processor
fortron 600w psu
7600gt graphics card

and I need to decide on a motherboard now. SLI is a plus and want to be able to overclock well. My main options right now are either the asus p5b deluxe, or the p5w dh deluxe. anyone have any more suggestions or can help me to choose between these two?

thanks..

Not sure what your budget is, but the evga 122 is out

edit: Didn't see the last part, does it have to be between those 2?

Yeah, I wanted the 680i, but none of the local shops stock it yet (netherlands). Not sure how long it will take, but would prefer to have this machine up this week. Does newegg do international shipping?

As for budget, it kind of depends on my mood, I go crazy sometimes

Oh, and my choice isnt between those two, just looking for some ideas. Right now I''m thinking of going for a p5b until those nvidia nforce 680i comes out here, then the p5b can go into my other machine.. still very undecided though..



edit: found one in holland:
http://www.azerty.nl/producten/produ...li-retail.html
only thing is that site says that it has 2 pci-e x16 slots, while the newegg description says that it has 3.. is it the same mobo?
