ASUS A8V Deluxe vs Abit AV8

I'm building a new computer for DOOM 3 and I wanted to get some opinions on which is the best motherboard. I have read a bunch of reviews/threads and I wanted to get some advice from people with the boards.

Also, could anyone give me some help with choosing the best processor (planning on overclocking a bit). I am williing to pay more if the benefits are really there.

Thanks!!!

they look identical, one has more sata, one has better sound, one has more IEEE1394. With either system DOOM 3 is going to run fine. No matter what chip you pick, the overclock is going to depend on the quality of the PSU, and the cooling.
