If its in the budget then the ASUS 990X

better expansion slot layout than the 970 boards as well as the possibility of adding a second graphics card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -- 140$

Very solid well-rounded board with lots of PCIE 16x slots if you want to SLI

And if comes with a copy of Diablo 3 for free, if you care about that
(you can always sell it)

BTW - SLI and Crossfire are the Multiple-GPU solutions offered by NViDIA and AMD, respectively. With enough PCIE 16x slots, you can add multiple graphics cards to a single motherboard.

SLI means Scalable Link Interface. It's the term used by Nvidia to describe the use of a pair(or three or four) of identical graphics processing units(GPU) to improve graphics framerates while playing games. A special cable is required to connect the two or more cards together to enable the feature as well as software support built in to the drivers and driver support software. AMD does the same thing but calls it CrossfireX or Crossfire for short.

Sorry for abandoning this so quickly, but I had to go do something.

Anyway, your budget for a GPU and your expectations for it would help in the recommendation.
