I'm using a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3h. It's about $120 depending on where you buy it and it's really easy to overclock on it.

Since you are going with non-overclockable i3, an h77 board would slash ~$30 off the board price.

If you haven't bought the CPU yet, I would pick an i3-3220 instead. I see it at the same price as the i3-2120 (both $129.99 on NewEgg) but you would save 10W and get ~7% more performance going with the 3220.
