Here's my server, very similar.

Supermicro X8DAi
dual E5520s
Patriot 12Gb

I would choose a server-grade board over the Asus (Tyan being another choice). I had one before the SM, and once I set up the X8DAi I never looked back. PSU-wise I run a PCP&C Silencer 910W since it's up 24/7. Didn't want to load the PSU with a lower-wattage model. The board also required dual 8-pin EPS connectors, which the Silencer has.
