ASUS or Gigabyte, however the ASUS boards seem very overpriced... Possibly because of a new feature they have on them.

I would opt for Gigabyte. Granted their boards don't have UEFI yet, they are supposed to have that soon I believe.

I personally am going with the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe. Signs are pointing that it will be in the $240 range. The main selling points for me are:

Crossfire/SLI support
3 PCIe lanes with support for x8/x8/x4 while in Crossfire/SLI or x16 with a single card
16+2 Phase VRM design
Dual gigabit ethernet
BT GO!
EFI BIOS
LED display readout
External USB 3.0 module that fits in a 3.5 bay

Here is an article of its overclocking capabilities with the 2500k compared with the P8P67.

From what I understand it allows you to be connected to two different networks at once. It is kind of gimmicky but it does have it's uses.

2 networks OR you can channel the adapters into 1 2GB team via software. Good for streaming video, etc.

Yes it would be, but a network could also be your local network, as in your home. One port for your ISP and one to transfer files from one computer in your home to another.
