I assume it's an AM2 CPU? If it's 939 you will have a harder time finding a board. I would recommend the ASRock 780FullHD, except it seems that the egg no longer carries it. No doubt ASRock wants to phase it out for a new version, which I believe is the following

ASRock A780GMH/128M $69.99

I supports AM3 and even has ACC via the new SB710. The cheaper version would be the ASRock A780LM

ASRock A780LM $54.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

but it seems to have those lower quality capacitors. I'd say the A780GHM is worth the extra money. Just make sure you read the overclocking sticky to know what you are doing before overclocking. Even though ASRock boards generally have a wealth of overclocking values, they don't exactly make any effort to explain them and I can't say I like the default values that are present when you choose the manual settings to overclock it. Usually it's because it sets rather high voltages so make sure you know what the voltage of your components is suppose to be and where you want to go from there.

If you wanted something easier to work with you could go with this gigabyte

GIGABYTE GA-MA770-UD3 $74.99

Gigabytes are generally easier to overclock if you're not sure what you're doing. Personally though with that budget I would go with the ASRock
