I haven't done the maths but go for either the Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R or Asus' P6X58D-E. They are both great boards. Overclocking is pretty much upping the clock speed of the CPU, GPU or chipset to enhance performance and the i7 series chips are pretty easy to OC. However the i7 is pretty good as stock, anything else is a bonus.
