Since the new 680i motherboards cost $30 above your budget, the best I can recommend is a Gigabyte DS3.

the best mobo for under 300 would prob be the intel battleaxe , but if you can pay $30 more...go with the evga 680i

edit: would have suggested the asus p5b-deluxe, b/c its a great overclocker. But doesn't carry them...but the p5w-deluxe is a good overclocker too but if you can afford might as well go with the evga 680i
