You can get the eVGA 650i from their B stock for $49.00.

Probably not if you want to OC. The ECS boards I've used have all been absolutely terrible. 650i only support x8,x8 SLI mode though, so the cards won't be getting full bandwidth.

Yes but there is not a big difference in performance in 8x vs 16 when gaming. I have a 650i with my pair of GTX's and it goes perfect

That 650i in B stock is a great buy. It only has 16x and 8x but most cards up to probably around an 8800GS or so will run okay in x8. I know SLI 8800GTX's could run maxed on a 650i when they tested it against the full 16/16 680i.

For what processor? If you want to put a quad on it, then you will need to go with a newer 750i chipset or one of the EVGA 680i boards.

If its dual core, then any of the 650i (like the EVGA above or the asus P5N-E) will work fine.
