Hi, recently I just got an intel xeon e5-2603 v2 and I want to build a machine around it. Is there any motherboard < $100 that supports this cpu?

As I just posted in other topic ( http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3770849/xeon-1620-motherboard-compatibility.html ), decent Ivy Bridge boards are becoming more difficult to find and are not cheap.

You can try to look for a used X79, I have decent experience buying a used Lenovo S30 workstations (you need to be careful about the exact model number though, because some of them only support Sandy Bridge / v1 CPUs)

Alternatively, there are some brand new Chinese X79 boards available on ebay/aliexpress priced around $100 which you can take a look at
