Any H81 board will do fine. If you want XFIRE support then look at H87/H97, and if you want SLI support look at Z97. 

 

Finally, if you may consider upgrading to a Broadwell i7 -k processor, then Z97.

Prices vary depending on where you're shopping. If you don't need any special features, you can just go with the cheapest 1150 motherboard you can find.

i5-4460 is a haswell refresh CPU so to have the CPU work out of the box without the need to update the bios (for which you need an older compatible CPU) you should look for a H97 motherboard, the best bang for the buck ATM would be this motherboard:

If you can spend some more i'd suggest this gaming motherboard, still cheap:
