any x38 based board like the asus p5e would be the best as they have 2 full 16x pci-e 2.0 slots where as p35 only has 16x/4x

X38 would be the best i guess try and get the GA-X38-Ds4 or if you have the money go for the Asus Maximus Formula

P5K-E for P35 chipset board and Gigabyte X38-DS4 (DQ6 trimmed version)

Thanks.

Has anyone know it is good the GA-X38 DQ4 to overclock?

DS4 or DQ6? I had helped friends build few rigs last month. Two DQ6 are working very good so far but they didn't do high OC. They are around 3.6 for E6750.

another vote for the maximus. I am surprise how stable the board is with 4 stick of ram when your get your bios sorted out. Also, it kick my old p5w dh out of the water when on how easy to overclock with lower vcore
