My personal preference for mobos is ASUS so i would naturally pick that one. But dont get me wrong, Gigabytes are very high quality boards as well

Why do you need 320 gigs for operating system? I understand you'll probably want to put applications and programs on there for faster performance, but do you really need 320 gigs?
Also, I'm not sure about this someone will have to correct me, but I don't think putting operating system etc. on another REGULAR SATA drive will make a difference.
I thought it only makes a difference if you put storage on a SATA drive, and other stuff on an SSD. But I'm not sure.

I don't think a 10k RPM will make much a difference.
I feel that the only time that you need a separate HDD for apps and OS is when you are using a SATA for storage, and you get an SSD for apps and OS. Or if you have a 5400 RPM for storage, getting a 7200 RPM for OS might be worthwhile.

Yeah they are expensive, I am just saying that I don't see a need for a separate SATA drive for apps.
I feel you should just put everything including storage and OS and apps on one drive.
