If you are looking to set up a low end LGA1156 system, the $150 MSI P55-GD65 is worth a look.  7 SATA II and an eSATA port should keep your storage subsystem happy, 14 USB 2.0 ports will accept a huge collection of gadgetry and there is even a pair of 16x PCIe 2.0 slots for graphics.  As with all of the P55 boards, one touch overclocking is possible, though [H]ard|OCP managed a better overclock when they manually modified the BIOS settings.  A Gold Award winning board for just $155 is hard to turn up.

“MSI’s latest Intel P55 based board looks to be cut from the same mold as its big brother P55-GC80 motherboard. The GD65 is mean, lean, and ready to rumble. While it does not pack in all the features of the GD80, the GD65 does not act like a $155 motherboard.”
