Good but cheap to expensive but with better performance Intel chipsets in descending order.
DFI DK P35
DFI DK X38 (Crossfire)
DFI LT X38 (Crossfire)
Asus Maximus Formula
DFI LT X48 (Crossfire)

Nvidia chipset if you want to sli in the future.
EVGA 690i (SLI)

Does crossfire with 16x and 4x, so not really useable crossfire. And yea I missed the wifi, but it's not worth it really; can just buy a cheap add on card. The list, imo, are the best mobo's for overclocking and performance.
