i take it you mean all in one with audio, lan and so on?
well i'd look at the gigabyte and msi range. they have low end prices for a lot. if ou wind up getting one with serial ata on it. try and get it with ide as well. backward compatability is the order for now. till the prices come down. ;D
stay away from asrock. whaever you do dont go here. we just had a nightmare with one for a guy. brrrr.....sends shivers down me spine........

It goin be sorta challenging to get a gigabyte board still, but if u can get a gigabyte integrated board, trust me, buy it, listen to deakie, he is an intelligent one. Other good brands are Msi and Pc-chips.

to start you off
MSI K7N2 DELTA-L <----no onboard vid or serial ata....
MSI K7N2 DELTA-ILSR <----no onboard vid but has serial ata
MSI K7N2G-ILSR <----no onboard vid but only needs wings to fly
MSI-KT4ULR <----no onboard vid
these are just examples of the cheaper end of the msi range.
really what you need to do is this. i'll give you some links for the motherboards k. then, you have to know whats gonna be available to you. eg. a friend is going to miami and you gonna give him the dollares to get it for you. you then look up all the shops in miami on the web and check what they have and their prices. you then give him the money and shop address to get it for you. + the threat seh if him no come back yu a go hunt him dung like dawg. ;D of course the shops cant be 'mailorder business only' unless you are gonna have them UPS the board to you. you then factor in the cost by emailing the company on how much it would cost. ;)
here are the lnks to the boards. check em and compare the prices with the shops.

pcchips amd "http://www.pcchips.com.tw/product/k7.html"

You need a board with onboard vid too ???? :o
What you plan on doing? Setting up a small business? Donate a lil machine to a school?
I guess that would explain the onboard vid.
I have always loved Soyo, they have the most rounded package when it comes to integrated - no vid boards.
what processor u plan on using? AMD or Intel?

It would be interesting to hear what you plan to do with the system the board will go in.
Our recommendations may be dependent on that.
Gigabyte does make good integrated boards but if you plan on making a system that will have heaving graphics display (for example gaming), I would suggest a SOYO motherboard and purchase a video card separately.
Give us some more information when you have the time.
