    You can find some decent boards for that price...

    MSI Z77-GD55 is a good one in that price range and support everything your asking for, this is for Intel.

    AMD - you can look at the ASRock or Gigabyte 990FX series board.. Range from $120-$140 and are decent boards.

    I like ASRock and ASUS 990FX boards. Go for the most feature you can afford. Make sure there are two X16 speed PCI-E slots in it and not just one X16 and one X8.
