The number of responses in the last 8 hours has a message in them. I think it's hard to find an "endorsable" motherboard for under $100 shipped. Now, for under $135 shipped, your options improve immensely.

I'm gonna have to second Lionfish on that one.... you'll spend a little bit more than $100 after shipping, but I think it's the best budget mobo out there right now. Lionfish, how's that thing working oiut so far? Done any overclocking on it yet?

the msi k7t turbo which is an excellent via 133A chipset mobo, is around $100, maybe to the under a hundred. Anyways, check out www.anandtech.com they have a weekly Motherboard and Video Price guide, there are some in your price range which are decent to good. They aren't the top of the line Asus, Abit, Iwill, MSI boards though.

Id say the Abit KT7E also-its BLUE, and has the KT133a chipset, cheap, and still does FSB upward of 140, $108 at pricewatch
