That mobo has onboard video and I think you will find that the majority of mobo's with onboard video do not overclock near as well as ones with none.

How about a DFI board?
Just over your price.

Maybe even the eVGA board, although it's even more expensive...

You definately don't want something with onboard graphics. I think the 570SLI and 590SLI chipsets are where you want to be looking.
