Most of your higher end boards will easily support 8GB, although it depends which chipset you go with. FWIW a lot of folks were raving with the X48 boards, while the nVidia 78s and 790s were popular but at the same time reported to have more bugs than the Intel boards.

And yet, I am using an eVGA 780i with 4 GB of RAM (cannot use 8 b/c this particular RAM has particularly large heatsinks attached making side by side installation impossible).
