You wont need that mobo if you will not be going Crossfire...
Even this would do...

And for the work that you do, why not more RAM ? It would really be beneficial...

Thank you very much!! gk

well, how different between DDR3 1333 and 1600?
I might buy 4GB later... but if it's slightly different in term of speed I will go for 1333

another question is about GPU
I wonder why many experts suggested Zotac GTS 250 rather than GTX 4xx for 3d rig.
is GTS250 better than GTX 4xx in 3d graphic work?

^ As for the RAM, there is not much difference if you wont be overclocking high...

About the GPU, that Zotac GTS 250 supports OpenGL 3.2...that is the reason why they are suggested pretty often...
But as for the GTX 4xx they all support OpenGL4.0...So it would be better but again it is costlier too...And OpenGL allows for faster processing...

Or if you could wait for few days, Nvidia will be launching the GTS 450 in a month or 2...That would be cheaper and good enough for your needs...
So maybe till then work with the onboard video by changing to these boards...

So when they release the newer cards, get them...
