OK so I am building my first computer and have narrowed down most of the parts that I am planning on using. I would appriciate people input of which mother board I should buy. I would like to spend no more than $150 on the board but would love to find something closer to $100.

My build so far:
Intel i5 3570k 3.4GHz
8gb of corsair vengeance ram 1600
Western Digital 1tb caviar black
Gigabyte GeForce gtx 660
Antec three hundred two
Corsair CX600

I also plan on overclocking this system so any motherboard that makes overclocking easier would be good. Also in the future I may want to run two 660s through sli but if it drives the cost of the board up too much I won't wast the money.

Also I looked up the xeon and it has a lower clock speed than the 3570k(3.3 GHz for xeon vs 3.4 GHz for i5 3570k)

yes. Both are z77 chipset boards. They are about $30 more than the B75 boards, which don't support overclocking.
