Default which main board for freebsd 7?

I have a Asus P5N-E SLI with a xeon X3220 quad core and 4gb of DDR2.
Asus P5N-E SLI is a good main board, but unfortunatly it isn't well supported by freebsd (it can't boot with apic enabled, and so opensolaris..).
I also have a scsi raid controller (LSI Megaraid 320-1, pci 64bit).
I want to change my main board with a new one with PCI-X slot (for the raid controller) that support my cpu, and that support freebsd as well..
For now, I have only found this main board: ASUS P5K WS.
Someone have this main board? It works without problems?
(I have doubts for example about marvell chipset: Marvell 88E8052/88E8056 Dual Gigabit LAN).
There are others main board for quad core (socket 775) with pci-x?

I have the dual marvell gigabit lan in my Asus P5wd2-e premium and it works very well. My board only supports up to a Pentium D (no core2 stuff) so I couldn't reccomend it to you, but the gigabit is happy as could be.
