mobo under 150$ for intel xeon E3 1230-V3

Hi guys! I'm going to build new PC. Since I'm pretty sure about CPU (it will be xeon 1230-v3). But next comes question about motherboard.

Since I'm building home workstation not server one I've decided to drop out server mobos from list. My needs are: a lot of python programming and dealing with VM's also it would be great to play some heavy new game in other day. Also not interested in OC but want to wind up with as much high performance system with high quality components as my budget will allow me to.

Haven't decided yet which GPU I should take for my build so different options such crossfire and sli support may come in handy.

It seems that GA-Z87X-D3H from gigabyte is popular in answers on this forum so I ask your opinion.

Also if product is really worthy to consider I'm ready to pay up to 30$ more but if it really something outstanding for my configuration =)
