I would also stay in P55 or AM3 ( if possible ) because I don't want to spend 2000 for this rig. So just a board that do what I want would be nice.
For P55 combined with an i7 860 this is the one to get;
NCIX.com - Buy ASUS P7P55 Ws Supercomputer 5PCI-E16 PCI-E1 PCI GBLAN 6SATA GBLAN 1394 Motherboard - P7P55 WS SuperComputer In Canada.
I've found it nice and stable.
deadthings also has it and is running 4x gpus plus the -bigadv WU's and gets great ppd.
There are also 4 slot boards by Asrock that are similiar.
For AMD the
NCIX.com - Buy MSI 790FX-GD70 ATX AM3 790FX DDR3 4PCI-E16 CrossFire 1PCI-E1 2PCI eSATA SATA GBLAN Motherboard - 790FX-GD70 In Canada.
sswilson has this one with 4x gpu's, maybe check with him to see how he likes it...
