Since you are going SLI you'll need an nV SLI chipset based board.
I've used the the EVGA 680i, it was a great over clocker but the NB fan(req.) was noisey as hell. I have an ASUS P5N32-E SLI (650i) in my #2 PC its very stable, but picky about memory used and is limited to ~360 fsb OC.

I really love the Asus Striker Extreme 680i works like a charm! (nana2)
