im looking for an atx motherboard that is compatible with this cpu for Between $50-$100. would like either a gigabyte,msi,asus or another popular brand.

cpu: AMD Athlon II X3 445

it also needs to be able to have 8gb ram and at least 4 sata ports and able to do sli/crossfire (sli/crossfire not a big deal if the mobo cant do it)

Athlon II and Phenom II are both socket AM3 CPU's and are supported by the same motherboards!

It depends on what you want, for $100 the board I linked to is very good and has CF support but no USB3 or SATA6GB. There are cheaper options that support those functions if you want those but not necessarily from the manufacturers you specified. This board supports CF, USB3 and SATA6GB

That's the AM3 board I'd probably choose. I've had nothing but excellent results with ASRock.
