Boards with CFX and/or SLI support usually costs a hefty sum. Here's what I recommend:

I use this board, an mATX packed with features, and I'm satisfied with it.

Hmmm. Question, what would your rig be for? Because there's really no need for a 3770k if you're just gonna game. If that's the case, you could just get a 3570k and invest in a better mobo. :D 

Edit: I saw some sub-$100 boards at Newegg, but they're not Z77 and don't support overclocking

Quick check on Newegg gets me this:

$120 + $8 Shipping - $10 MIRc = $118
MSI Z77MA-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

or Full ATX size:

$125 shipped!
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I'd recommend getting a solid single GPU, rather than use SLI/Xfire, IMHO.

Single PCI-e 3.0 slot and still has lots of options!
$90 - $10 MIRc + 8 Shipping = $88!
ASRock Z77 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I've got a friend who's a graphics design student and he says that industry programs doesn't take advantage of SLI, if that is true you could get the most powerful card you can afford and invest in a better board.

Edit: With that in mind, I think the best course of action is to do what lunyone suggested.

Currently using Gtx 650 Ti which doesnt support SLI but I have planning for the future with different cards :)

So you're really dead set on an SLI setup? Don't skimp on the mobo if your are.
