Best mobo replacement w/ kt133a chipset or better?

Hey all,

I have the following setup:

Motherboard: MSI KT7 Pro2-A with VIA kt133a chipset
Processor: AMD Thunderbird 800mhz

Motherboard is dead. (Voltage regulator) I want to just replace my old motherboard with a good substitute and continue to use old parts.

Must support: SD PC133 ram, Ultra DMA133, under $50 (I don't care if it's OEM), and don't really care if it's the same chipset.
Any suggestions on another board?

Thanks to everyone for your knowledge and expert advice.
