Gigabyte P965 DS3, ASUS P5B or P5B-E they are a little (like 10 bucks) out of your price range, but are the best for the price.

At first glance, I like this one. Might not be the best around, but I feel it's a great performer regardless:

Damn, I just found out that it's a micro ATX and has integrated video. Scratch that and consider this one:
