hI,
50 $ is a bit unrealistics,

for about 59 $ + tax you can get micro atx board if you don't need any pci slots.
here an example. But micro atx also limits you on memory and usb ports

If you want a gaming mobo, you'll have to invest at least 150 $, most mobo under that are limitted or lemons ;)

You mean a max of $50?

You could go for this MSI board that can accommodate one video card:
MSI H61 Board

If you're not going to be overclocking and you're using an i3, this will be sufficient. It's got all the basics, can accommodate 1 video card and 4 disks. It doesn't have surround sound, but I'm guessing that's not a concern?
