wow you would be lukky am3 is 45$+ it will be the 740 or 770 chipset but the motherboard is a very important part
i would say 50-60$ would be a safer bet

What is your complete budget and build?? You aren't going to find an AM3 motherboard worth the cost at under $40... IMO. I would rather see cutting cost possible elsewhere, like going with an Athlon II x3 440 over a Phenom II X4 955, which would save you $90 roughly, which you could use on a much better motherboard.
