Upgrading my DAW . . . advice needed

Just in the process of upgrading my DAW.

So far i have bought:

2 x Western Digital SATAII 320GB drives &
AMD AM2 Athlon 3800+ CPU

Looking for a decent motherboard now. Are the following a good call? :

Gigabyte GA 3PXSL-RH, NF430, AM2, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 533/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX

or even:
Gigabyte GA M55Plus-S3G, NF430, S AM2, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 400/533/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX

The 2nd one is a bit cheaper but can't c a reason as to why it is? Is it lacking something that the first board has?
