[H]ardOCP has a review of what looks to be a pretty decent mid-range motherboard.
[H]ardOCP – ASUS P8P67 Pro New B3 Revision Motherboard Review.
I’m digging the new look of their site too!

While this is not a super-inexpensive board, it really is not set up to be. It has a very solid feature set, a deep and easy to use UEFI BIOS for enthusiasts, and as you see is no slouch when it comes to overclocking.
