p.s the x2 4400 is crap for gaming get a fx 55 or fx57 (if you can afford it)

Single cards are always going to be that bit better than another card down the line. EG all those people who bought a pair of 6800 ultras as they thought it would be just as good as the 7800 when it came out and didnt have the patience will be kickin themselves as they paid alot of more money and arent as fast as they could have had with only one 7800gtx.
The new ati cards will also be good ATIs new high end card will have 42 pipelines apparently.
If you dont plan on overclocking the DFI board isnt the one for you it is a bit of a beast and as such can be a bit temperamental: at least so says the word on the street. I dont know how much experince you have but a more all rounder idiot proof board might be for you, with dfis you also pay more for the fact it looks so [bleep] good which if you dont have a window really is a waste.

Also have to agree that if you're an impatient bleeding edge gaming tweaker, go DFI & FX. However, if you love games and also fancy a bit of video editing and photoshopping, I'd go for the X2. I also suspect that the X2 you have in mind will outperform the FX55/57 in major game releases in 12 months.
