MSI are good, but not extremely overclockable. They overclock some, but not a lot.
Top-o-the-line right now would have to be DFI Lanparty mobos.
SLI mobos are made so as to be able to run two PCI-e graphics cards linked together. Not that you have to, but you could. Plus, they have nVidia's latest chipset.
