Motherboard advice

This is my first computer build and I am in the process of choosing a motherboard.

So far these are the spec. for the system:
CPU: i7-3770K
GPU: GTX 660 or GTX 660TI (not sure which one I will be able to afford yet)
I want to purchase a second card in the future so I want the Mobo SLI ready.
RAM: 8 GB 1600 either G. SKill or Corsair.
I usually don't overclock.
I am building the system in a 5 year old alienware area 51 case.

I have been looking at these cards and can't decide which one is the most ideal for my build.

My budget for the motherboard is around $ 160. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
