I think you should mention the Epox series as well. I don't know how much the VCore on an ABIT NF7 board can be raised, but I know for sue that the Epox can go up to 2.2V, an incredibly high value, if you consider that most CPU's run around 1.6V nowadays..
I wouldn't mind too much about the quality of the Asus board... as always, there are always people with bad and good experiences with a certain piece of hardware, but when looking at the big picture (A7N8X is quite a popular board), I think it's safe to go with it...
