Video card are mainly the same actually, there is no costum PCB for now. Look at a 460 that suit your budget and that the look is good for you. The day costum PCB will enter the game then we will talk about quality of a product. For 2 two board listed above I would go for the Asus. There is also a 980A chipet ( the most recent sli chipset from ATI ) that would be pretty interesting since the 750 is a bit old. MSI are actually doing some great board but I am less sure with their 2 years old 750a design.
Newegg.ca - ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

Yeah no prob, G.skill have some flare series that are made for AMD but Ripjaw will do the same job;) And G.skill is also a perfect pick. Many of us here use them and they are awesome:) Just make sure that the board you will pick in your final decision is AM3 + DDR3. Some crap brand like Asrock have done few AM3 DDR2 board...lol...

Guess why I lead him to a 980a There is some reason why Intel dropped Nvidia chipset and AMD are doing the same with their next socket

Not sure if this has be tossed out there as an idea yet, and consideration for Lucid based mobo? Ive yet to see to any reviews on it too deeply, but it might solve your problem of running sli on crap chipsets for AMD boards . I feel your pain on the lack of sli options for AMD, but ive yet to see a good sli chipset since the nf4 days of socket 939.
