Rampage is the top of the line mobo for Asus, they usually have more features that most of the OC like, a lot of times more tweakable or with more options than their lower end, but it really depends on your needs, but hey you already going with a $1000 CPU, so i would go with the Rampage. You probably will find more info in a OCing forum, not many here go for such an expensive / powerful CPU.

If you're getting a 'custom' PC from some website get the cheapest option. Something tells me you won't be overclocking.
