Welcome to the to HardwareCanucks.

Yes it is the exact same board. Yes, it does support DDR2-800.
Direct specs from the Asus web site

If you are in Canada, defiantly order it from Direct Canada. My question is why don't you go for the ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe ATX AM2 Nforce 570 SLI for an extra $46.44?

Personally I would make the following changes:

Video Card: If you are not going to do SLI I would opt for the Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro for $205.20 as it's been proven to be faster than the 7900GS

Case: Coolermaster Centurion 534 ATX Tower Case - $52.92

PSU: The Antec NeoH is for that cheap would be the $430W. I would suggested getting the OCZ GameXStream 600W - $96.79

Ram: OCZ Platinum EL XTC PC2-6400 1GB 2X512 DDR2 CL4-5-4-15 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit - $93.98

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache Ncq Hard Drive - $91.98

I'd try and stay away from the Canada Computers they are bitch to return things to and their Customer Service is crap. I have boughten from them and never again.
