If you do go amd, the 965 is a factory overclocked 955 and since your overclocking anyways its a waste of money.

Hello the x-58,chipset , so any x-58 board?? and a i7-930

You will have to increase your budget to get an X58 mobo and the i7-930. Best mobos come from ASUS, Gigabyte. There are also some good mobos coming from MSI.
