Default Re: Asus Striker Extreme or EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR

Can someone explain the ASUS Striker Extreme memory situation if you use all 4 DIMM sockets but do not overclock?

We cannot get EVGA products in Australia, these are my choices for motherboards:
(out of those choices ASUS is far and away my first choice, the only other brands I'd even consider being Gigabyte & Abit).

I plan on using the Intel QX6700 quad core cpu (Yes, I know not much difference between two and 4 cores atm, but I expect that will change with upcoming games due to multiple cpu's in the consoles).

I plan on using 4 gig of this memory (nvidia SLI certified)
There are no 2 gig DIMMS available @1066mhz

For graphics I intend to use 2x[product_code]=AL-IV-8800GTX&input[category_id]=1506

I'm not sure whether to go this way (nforce 680i seems to be quite troublesome) or build a system around a gigabyte nForce590 + AMD6000+ (not as powerful overall, but seems like it would be more stable).

Primary rig:
CPU: Intel i7 2600K
Cooler: Cooler MAster Hyper 212+
Motherboard Asrock z68 Extreme 4
Memory: 8gb Corsair DDR-3 1333
