how do you plan on running SLI on an X38 board exactly? You'll need an nvidia chipset.

If your looking for a bit of a powerhouse look at the 3870X2, it should be stocked soon.

Your only option is 780i if you need SLI. EVGA/ASUS both have such boards.

Is it going to be overclocked?

^Agreed you need an nVidia chipset to run SLI. Imo, SLI is not worth it unless you plan to run games on a huge monitor with every setting at max.
