Gigabyte P35 DS3L is a very good board. If you need a lot of features on the board, e.g., firewire, eSATA, 6 SATA connectors, you're likely to have to get a board with 2 PCIe x16 slots but you don't have to use 2 GPUs, e.g., the ASUS P5K E another P35 mobo.

Haven't compared the DS3R and P5K E but I think the latter may have a few more features like eSATA but not sure. Best to compare boards on newegg for features. Not sure of RAID capabilities

Yes, you can run one nVidia card on a board designed for Crossfire.
