I was about to say this.. ah well.
Price jumps when people want 3-4 16x PCIE slots.. most motherboards have similar components and chipsets - even $100 boards can have usb3 / sata3.
The only other things higher price boards could have is onboard RAID, more sata connections and bells-and-whistles like oc tuner cards, voltage test connections and bigger chipset/vrm heatsinks.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
