It sounds like you will enjoy it!
However, to enjoy the experience of putting it together, you may like to visit this guide dealing with installation of ASUS SLI board.http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/38623/
Also, a great forum that has just started up is http://mental18.phpbbweb.com/mental18.html
Its a forum specifically for your board and is moderated by users of the board ... not by some commercial company. We also have an ASUS tech who oversees the whole forum and he does it off his own bat.
