You certainly don't need to spend anywhere close to $200 for a non-SLI board.
What CPU are you using? AMD and Intel Both require different boards. The two more popular boards include Intel's Socket 1155 (SandyBridge), and AMD's Socket AM3.
Intel Socket 1155:
ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 - This is one of the cheapest boards that DOES support SLI, and at only $125 is one of the best buys around currently, especially since it includes PCI 3.0 support http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271
AM3: MSI 870-G45 AM3 $72 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130290
