Asrock Extreme4 or 6 won't stretch your budget that much and they are proven capable overclockers.

If you really are going the Asus way, I've heard good things about the Asus P8P67 Pro.
I kinda had a bad experience with an Asrock board before. It left a bad taste in my mouth.

Looks good, but I prefer Samsung HDD's and 1600 ram with a low profile to work with a Scythe Mugen 2. Sorry if I wasn't detailed enough; I'm intoxicated and slow right now.

I guess, mainly I'm just looking for a good board between $100 and $200 to match with a Sandy Bridge chip.
