Default Best AM2 board?

What is the best AM2 board for overclocking, and is future proof. I hear the 790X is pretty good, but am not totally sure of what is the best. I now own the M2N-SLI Deluxe and it isn't that great for ocing.

My System Specs


Right now, my guess would be the 790FX. Even if its not, at least it has support for all the new AM2+ features along with PCIe 2.0.
