I don't think you skimped on the Mobo... it is a good board. Not top, but certainly not bottom. Looks like it will give you solid performance... just keep an eye on the chipset fan. If it starts to sound like a cat in its death throws, contact ASUS for a new one. (which can be a pain to install, but it's free)

you should ebay that and get this... A8N32-SLI Deluxe
its not that skimpy... but you will love that ASUS A8N32 board.. especially if you plan to oc any.

It's certainly not a bad board at all, it's quite capable of what you're throwing at it. If you're not using Sli, there's no need to throw extra bucks into it. As a matter of fact, that's the board I was considering as well as the one I have. I decided to go with the heatpipe instead of the fan, just one less thing to worry about, however I don't know if I made the right choice for the extra bucks I paid.
