The asus p7p55d would be your best bet. - ASUS P7P55D LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
a touch more than the others under 140 but it has much much better phase power for overclocking and good amount of I/O. Check out the open boxes if your interested, theres some great deals.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

I7 930 @ 4GHz : Noctua D-14
Gigabyte X58A-UD7 : Asus GTX 480
G.Skill Trident 1600MHz 6-8-7-18 : Samsung F3 1TB
OCZ Vertex 2 50GB : Silverstone RV02 Case
Silverstone Strider Plus 1Kw : Sony DRU-870s Optical
Samsung P2350 Monito

I'd consider this open box MSI gd80 though. Very good board. - Open Box: MSI P55-GD80 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
