My mobo, the Chaintech 9CJS Zenith, is one of the best OCing mobo's for the P4

Otherwise the ASUS and Abit boards you mentioned are just as good

I'd suggest the Intel d875pbz board. Thats what I have my 2.8 in and it works great. Not to expensive eather. Or you could go with the Intel D865GBFL. Eather of the boards are solid boards.
