While I hate the color scheme, and the company,
BIOSTAR T5 XE CFX-SLI LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX
looks like the best choice for the price range. If you went 20 dollars higher, you could go for a Gigabyte, or Asus mobo with full PCIe 2.0 x16 support for a crossfire, or SLI configuration. With this board, you'll get x16, x8, which may or may not give your second card all the breathing you you'll want.
Almost all of the feedback for this mobo is positive, so you'll be happy with it as long as it's in an enclosed case, far away from where anyone will see it.
