New system motherboard recommendation

Hi everyone,
this isn't the first time I've built a system but it is the first time I've gone through and selected all the components myself. I've probably spent a good few weeks reading as many articles as I can, especially on this site, and the forums.

I thought I had figured out what I wanted but as I read more I become unsure sometimes. My original thought for my motherboard was to go with:

Asus P7P55D PRO

and then use 4gb Kingston ValueRAM 4GB PC3-10600 as I am on a bit of a budget.

However, after looking around more I found the eVGA P55 LE at the same store with a $30 mail in rebate.

Combined with a

Corsair 4GB Dominator PC3-12800 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit (2 x 2GB) kit

After rebates the evga board and corsair ram are cheaper.

For usage, I mostly game (although I'm not the type to require fastest frame rate possible on the highest resolution). I wouldn't mind trying to overclock with this build, and I will be using crossfire in the future.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
