I would look at the 750i and the 780i if I were you.

Do you already have the 8800 GT's ? If so, you're stuck with SLI. If not, I would suggest an X48 and get 4870s or something like that (2 4850s even).

Well XFX doesn't have the best motherboards, and now that they jumped ship from nVidia I doubt you'll get much support. Anyway I'd peronally go with the MSI P7N SLI Platinum for half the price, but since you're willing to spend that much then yeah that board you picked is a good choice especially if you plan to get two more powerful nVidia cards down the road.

You have just one 8800 GT, or both of them?
