1.Gigabyte Extreme/UD5 for best vfm and decent stability
2.Asus Rampage 2 extreme if you want to waste cash
3.Evga X58 SLI at 22.5k if you want best Overclocking, cooling and performance.

Since you dont have budget constraints go for Asus rampage 2 extreme...Or a better choice would be eVGA x58 sli (also supports cfx) and a creative supreme x-fi sound card, total which will cost same as rampage 2 extrme but you get better performance....What GPU are you getting BTW?

^nice choices...The GTX295 is a monster...Also its not required for ony 21" monitor...But since budget doesnt seem like a concern for you, go for it...:D

As for PSU get a corsair HX1000 or tagan BZ1100
