Its kind of hard to determine some of the MB's are SLI and some arn't. The best reviews are on the Abit Pro and The Gigabyte DS3L

Those all seem like good motherboards. I would just read through the specs, and determine which one has the features you need.

All those except one are Intel P35 which is a pretty good chipset too. Theres one though that is 680i SLI. If you wanted to go SLI, that one might be your best bet.
