With an E4300, I see absolutely no reason why you'll need an SLI/Crossfire motherboard.

I'd simply get the DS3. Even a single 8800 will push that CPU to the limits. Only if you want to upgrade to a more powerful CPU later would I recommend an SLI board, and in that case I recommend a more high-end board.
