Go with the ASUS P5K deluxe. It has the best chipset (Intel P35) for overclocking, and is also considered to be a solid board. That Gigabyte board has the older 965P chipset, and that BFG board has Nvidia chipset, which is unstable crap.

ASUS P5K deluxe FTW!

Edit: That Gigabyte board does not support SLI, only Crossfire.

Crossfire is for ATI/AMD cards only and SLI is for Nvidia cards only.

There are some 780i/790i Nvidia 775 boards that clock pretty good, but still has their faults.. Intel P45 is regarded as the best overclocking platform for 775. It runs cool and reach insane FSB speeds. Very stable and fast platform, just as the Intel P35 is... P45 reaches higher FSB speeds though, and has PCI express 2.0 instead of P35's 1.1. Little difference though, using todays graphics cards...
