Cost-effective Intel SLI motherboard with eSATA?

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good a Intel SLI motherboard (intended for an Intel i5 760) that supports:

1) PCIe x16 at x16 single card or x8/x8 dual SLI
2) at least 1 eSATA port
3) <= $150

I've looked all over Newegg, seems almost nothing good exists below the $150 price point (or anything that does exist has something like a 15% 1-egg approval rating, which is kind of ridiculous).

Thanks!

  2. The first doesn't appear to be found in Canada for less than $155, and the second one doesn't support SLI :-(
  3. This board has what you need.. ASUS P7P55D PRO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

    1) PCIe x16 at x16 single card or x8/x8 dual SLI
    2) at least 1 eSATA port (through a bracket :) , but works the same)
    3) <= $150
