hey tim thats a ddr2 board
Two 16x PCI-E 2.0 slots is a little overkill for 9800GTXs isn't it?

DDR3 is a lot more expensive and offers no performance advantage unless you're planning to do some serious overclocking (600+FSB), are you sure about going for it?

Will the cards be running in SLI or not? i.e. Are you trying to put lots of power onto a single monitor or are you running a dual-monitor gaming setup with a card per monitor? If you do want SLI then you'll need an nvidia chipset-based board.
