I would go with the Foxconn C51XEM2AA motherboard (the first one you hyperlinked). It has great reviews, and it has double the supported memory (8GB, versus 4GB). It's $209.99. If you can shell out for that motherboard, do so! Nice motherboard! Again, here's the link:

What graphics card are you getting? ATi or nVidia?

The Asus which King of Kings linked to had an award from a well-known magasine which I suscribe to, as did the Foxconn.

The Foxconn got the better award though, but that was because it was an excellent overclocking.

If you want a simple board with good overclocking, get the Foxconn.

If you want a board with loads of features which can still overclock relatively well, get the Asus.
