I would maybe look into this motherboard for that price range. It is a good deal for $169.99 and a $30 rebate.

Or you could go with this Asus board. I have used Asus products for a long time and they have always been reliable and top-notch.

PCIe3.0 will definitely be something you will want to take advantage of. The bitrate is double that of PCIe2.0.
