ASUS P5Q PRO Turbo is one of the best as long as you got the p45 chip set your good to go

Your rig looks pretty good bud why do you want a new mobo?

I agree, there are very few boards better than your own.
Some Gigabyte ones and maybe the p5Q deluxe or something, either way it really isn't worth it to upgrade to them.

Your multi is going to limit you no matter what board you buy, 7x is quite restrictive if you're aiming for 3.4GHz+ but your board should do something around 3.4 with the right settings and assuming the chip will do about 480FSB stable.

Even the better Gigabyte boards would have serious trouble going much above that so I'd save for a new board and CPU some way down the line if I were you, for regular gaming the overclock you'll get on that board should play things pretty decent.

To answer your question the Gigabyte UD3* boards are the best boards for overclocking quads but like I said, your board is probably a very capable overclocker so I doubt it's worth the money to upgrade unless you're going to socket 1155 or something.
