Tiger direct has the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R 1366 motherboard for $177.93 AR and BCB
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5648696&CatId=4070

$219.99 - $27.06 bing cashback - $15 rebate = $177.93
no tax added for CA

Bing is at 12.3% for tiger direct (less for compusa/circuitcity which are same company). Just search for:
Tiger Direct

http://www.gigabyte.us/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=3317

This 1366 motherboard has a lot of features, heres a few of them:
SATA 6G
USB 3

12 SATA ports
6 DDR3 slots
14 USB ports/headers
7 expansion slots including:
4 pcie 16x slots (triple sli runs at 16x/16x/8x)
Dual BIOS

This board is almost identical to the gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 which got a silver editors choice from hardocp:
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/02/01/gigabyte_x58aud7_motherboard_review/
The main differances are the included accessories and the extra gigabit lan on the UD7, and for that the UD7 is about $150 more.

Great deal. Went with this board for $195 with bing cash back from newegg, but they took forever to charge my card so I went with the UD5 at tiger direct for $245. Didn't see this one, very nice.

I've been running a couple of these for over a month, 24/7 stressed at 100% folding. They are both rock solid boards at 4 GHz with i7-920's. I've been a Gigabyte fan for a couple years now, but these boards are great and GB has outdone themselves with it. Very impressed!

Using the OC for dummies feature (turbo, or vcool whatever you call it), How does this Gigabyte mb compare to the Asus p6t deluxe when ocing the i7 920?

The one button click overclock windows (so no need to screw around in BIOS) software (easytune6) included with this mobo on default settings allows you to pick from 3 overclocking setups for the 920. 2.8ghz, 3.0 ghz, and 3.2 ghz (probably because those are almost certainly achivable on any i7-920 even with stock cooler)

This review took the 920 to 3.8 and didn't bother to do exhaustive testing to see if they could go higher:

This review took thier 920 to 3.9
http://www.thinkcomputers.org/gigabyte-x58a-ud3r-intel-x58-lga-1366-motherboard-review/6

This review took the 930 to 4.2 (the 930 is very similar to a 920)

The [H] review took the 920 to 4.0 ghz (they reviewed the ud7 board which is pretty close to the ud3r board, and we know the bjorn review took it to 4.2 so I think 4 should be achivable on the ud3r)
