The Asus A8N-SLI and A8N-SLI Deluxe are the only two Asus boards I can think of that support PCIe.

DFI makes a nice PCIe LAN-Party board, much better than any Asus in my opinion.

ABit AN8-3rd eye has PCI-E and would also make a good OC'ers board.

DFI and ABit are top two OC'ers boards you can get IMO
