Default Cheap LGA1155

whats the cheapest (m-itx, m-atx, atx) motherboard I could find that would work with the Xeon E3-1230?

What would be the cheapest to support Crossfire/SLI also?

thing is ive heard not all LGA1155 mobos are compatible with the xeon CPUs (although this might not be true, maybe if some1 could confirm or deny that it would be great) can find a shitty H61 board for 45$ but duno if it can handle the SB Xeons...

so far i know the asus p67 pro and asrock p67 extreme4 support the E3-1230 for sure but I'm trying to put together a very cheap system and thats beyond the budget...I'm wondering if shitty boards like the 55$ ECS H61H2-M2 could handle these?
