I have a very simular setup at home, the venice's are fast as ****.
are you planning to OC it alot? I dont know much about the ASUS board you are looking at, but the most I was able to get stable was 2.6 (on a 2.2 venice) which i was disappointed in, but the setup is very fast.
here is what I bought last year Opinons on PC (not for car)
The cpu link is busted but is the 2.2 venice 1ghz FSB
